Astronomy Professor 
Makes Campus Visit 

Dr. Frank Bradshaw Wood, chairman 
of the department of astronomy and di- 
rector of observatories at the University 
of Pennsylvania, visited the campus Mon- 
day and Tuesday under the program of 
visiting professors of the American Astro- 
nomical Association. 

During his stay at LVC Dr. Wood held 
interviews with students and lectured to 
classes. He presented a free public lec- 
ture, "The Birth, Life and Death of the 
Stars," Monday evening at 7:30 p.m. in 
the audio-visual room of the library. 

The program of visiting professors is 
supported by the National Science Foun- 
dation and is intended to stimulate inter- 
est in astronomy, to promote college pro- 
grams in astronomy and related fields, to 
give astronomers and other scientists op- 
portunity for contact with those of their 
field from other universities and observa- 
tories, and to motivate good college stu- 
dents to consider careers in astronomy or 
one of the other physical sciences. 

Dr. Wood earned his doctorate at 
Princeton University. He has done re- 
search at Princeton and at Steward and 
Lick Observatories, and was assistant as- 
tronomer at the University of Arizona. 
He was a Fulbright Fellow at the Mount 
Stromlo Observatory of the Australian 

Dr. Wood has published technical pa- 
pers on variable stars, stellar atmos- 
pheres, photometric researches and other 

Barth Thinks 'Angst' 

Eugene H. Barth, associate professor of 
religion at Albright College, was the guest 
speaker at chapel on January 9. His talk 
was entitled "Creative Insecurity." 

He described the struggle for security 
by the youth of today and the accom- 
panying necessary 'angst' or deep inner 
anxiety. Barth received his Bachelor of 
Arts from Albright and also studied at 
Oberlin College and Princeton University. 

Next Artist Series 
Presents Guitarist 

The second of this year's Artist Series programs will be a recital of 
music for the classic guitar, to be presented by Rey de la Torre on the 
evening of Tuesday, February 6, at 8:30 p.m. in Engle Hall. Mr. de la 
Torre will perform works written for the guitar and transcriptions of works 
originally written for other instruments. 
Typical of the former are Gallardas, 


Kalo Will Sponsor 
The Brothers Four 

The Brothers Four, a renowned folk-singing quartet, will present a 
two-hour concert, March 16, in the Lynch Memorial Gymnasium under 
the sponsorship of Kappa Lambda Sigma. Admission will be two dollars. 

General chairmen Blaine Shirk and Donald Drumheller will coordi- 
nate the ten committees which have been set up by president Lowell 
Brogan to produce the affair. 

The Brothers Four, noted for their re- 
cording of "Greenfields," met as fraternity 
brothers of Phi Gamma Delta at the Uni- 
versity of Washington in 1958. The four 
— Mike Kirkland, Dick Foley, John 
Paine, and Bob Flick — harmonized for 
campus activities and, through a gag that 
backfired, they were hired by a Seattle 
nightclub. Since then they have played in 
every state in the union, San Francisco's 
hungry i, Ed Sullivan Show, Dick Clark 
Show, and many colleges and universities. 
This has been described as fairly good 
work for a singing group unable to read 
music. They do their own arrangements 
and all are able to play at least one in- 

They are all natives of the Seattle area 
and before their meeting had no show 
business ambitions at all. Each had a 
career mapped out. For Kirkland, medi- 
cine; Foley, engineering; Paine, law; and 
Flick, radio-TV management. Bob Flick, 
who is the bass violinist, has this piece of 
advice for aspiring young musicians: "Un- 
less you're beefv in the bicep department 
take up the pick."

Students To Present 
Joint Music Recital 

Lebanon Valley College Department 
of Music will present a student recital on 
Sunday, January 14, at 3:00 p.m. in Engle 
Hall. Appearing as soloists will be Sylvia 
Bucher, mezzo-soprano, and Dennis Swei- 
gart, pianist. These musicians are stud- 
ents of Reynaldo Rovers and William 
Fairlamb, respectively. 

Sylvia will present the first half of 
the program accompanied by Jane Mc- 
Cann, pianist. She will sing the following 
selections: "Serve, Voi che Le Speranze," 
Rosa; "Donzelle," "Fuggite," Gavalli; "Li- 
tanei," Schubert; "Die Nacht," Strauss; 
"Wings of Night," Watts; "I Know My 
Love," Hughes; "Wall-Paper," Kings- 
ford; 'To a Young Gentleman," Carpen- 
ter; "Manhattan Joy Ride," Sargent; "I 
Heard a Cry," Fisher. 

Following an intermission, Dennis 
Sweigart will play Bach's "Prelude and 
Fugue in G Major," from the Well-Tem- 
pered Keyboard, book I; "Sonata in E 
flat" by Haydn, which includes an a'legro, 
adagio, and finale with presto; "Scherzo 
in C sharp minor," by Chopin; and "Sau- 
dades do Brazil," by Milhaud, which in- 
cludes Copacabana and Gavea. 

Pavanas and Folias by Gaspar Sanz, Vari- 
ations on a Theme by Mozart by Fernan- 
do Sor, Sonata for Guitar by Mauro Guil- 
liani, Temeolo Study by Francisco Tar- 
rega and Suite Castellana by F. Moreno 
Torroba. Examples of the transcriptions 
are dance suites from the early lute music 
of Luis de Milan and Robert de Visee, 
works from the keyboard and string mu- 
sic by J. S. Bach, Spanish Dance No. 5 
by Enrique Granadas, Sevillanas by Isaac 
Albeniz and Ballad of the Fisherman 
from EI amor brujo by Manuel de Falla. 

Will Play Six-Stringed Guitar 

The classic guitar is an instrument of 
six strings which are set into vibration by 
the fingers and thumb of the right hand. 
The three treble strings are nylon and the 
three bass strings are nylon wrapped with 
silver wire. The top of the instrument, 
which is very thin, is usually made of 
spruce or Hungarian fir. 

The sides and back are usually Brazil- 
ian rosewood, maple or mahogany. The 
neck is mahogany or cedar, while the 
fingerboard and bridge are ebony. Bone 
is used to support the strings at the bridge 
and at the upper end of the fingerboard. 
Discrete inlay work of pearl or multicol- 
ored woods is used around the soundhole 
and edges of the body. In some instru- 
ments, hand carvings ornament the peg- 

Classical Guitarists Omit Pick 

Because of the independence of the fin- 
gers of the right hand, harmonic and con- 
trapuntal effects can be achieved which 
are not possible when the strings are play- 
ed with a plectrum or pick. 

One of the most beautiful of these ef- 
fects is the tremolo, in which the melody 
note is sustained on the treble strings by 
repeated use of the third, second and 
first fingers while the bass accompaniment 
is played with the thumb. 

Nearly all guitarists utilize a portion of 
the fingernails in addition to the fleshy 
tip of the fingers to obtain a volume of 
tone capable of being heard in a concert 

The guitar is a derivative of the Span- 
ish vihuela, a violin-like instrument play- 
ed with the fingers of the right hand. The 
principal dimensions of the early guitars 
were gradually modified until the renown- 
ed Spanish guitar-maker Antonio Torres 
established, about 1870, the proportions 
of the classic guitar as it is known today. 

Tarrega Begins Modern Technique 

Styles of playing had also changed 
through the years until the eminent gui- 
tarist-composer Francisco Tarrega, a con- 
temporary of Torres, developed the tech- 
nique of playing used by virtually all 
modern classic guitarists. Tarrega ex- 
plored the resources of the instrument 
and greatly extended its interpretive 

In spite of his prodigious skill, Tarrega 
gave few concerts outside his native Spain. 
He chose, instead, a career of composing 
and teaching. Among his pupils was the 
illustrious Miguel Llobet, who did much, 
through his recitals, to extend Tarrega's 
reputation throughout the Western world. 
Essentially a performer, Llobet neverthe- 
less accepted a few pupils. Foremost 
among these was Rey de la Torre, who 
arrived in Spain from his native Cuba at 
the age of fourteen to study under Llobet

Corbett, Committee 
Plan REW Program 

James Corbett, a junior pre-theological 
student, is chairman of Religious Empha- 
sis Week which will be observed from 
February 26 to March 1, 

Committee members Richard Felty, 
Constance Meyers, Carl Rife, and Lynn 
Shubrooks, secretary, have been working 
with Corbett since October to prepare the 
program of activities. 

Faculty co-chairmen for this annual 
observance are Dr. James O. Bemesder- 
fer, college chaplain, and Dr. Karl Lock- 
wood, acting chairman of the department 
of chemistry. 

Dr. Samuel L. Gandy will travel from 
Dillard University in New Orleans, Loui- 
siana, where he is dean of the chapel, to 
serve as guest speaker. He will deliver 
three sermons based on the week's theme, 
"I and Thou." 

Three successive evenings will feature 
religious activities. Wig and Buckle will 
start the series with a dramatic religious 
presentation entitled "Christ and the Con- 
crete City" on Monday evening, Febru- 
ary 26. 

For Tuesday and Wednesday evenings 
the committee has planned a campus 
communion service and a banquet-conse- 
cration service. 

Columbia Gives Sixty 

Librarian Dr. Donald E. Fields recent- 
ly announced that the Columbia Record 
Company has presented a gift of sixty 
long-playing records to the George D. 
Gossard Library. 

Included in the large and varied collec- 
tion are selections taken from the stan- 
dard repertoires for orchestras, string 
quartets, and various solo instruments. 
The collection is valued at more than two 
hundred dollars. 

Mrs. Elizabeth Wilson of the library 
staff states, "We were very surprised and 
pleased when we received news from Co- 
lumbia that Lebanon Valley was to be a 
recipient of this generous gift. The collec- 
tion is composed of very fine records 
and adds greatly to our present stock." 

Concert Choir ToTape 
Numbers For NCC 

The National Council of Churches re- 
cently extended to the Lebanon Valley 
College Concert Choir an invitation to 
sing on the nationwide broadcast of the 
National Radio Pulpit. 

Director of the choir is Pierce Getz, 
assistant professor of organ in the De- 
partment of Music. Speaker for the pro- 
gram, which is broadcast from Riverside 
Church in New York City, will be the 
Reverend Doctor Robert J. McCracken. 

Music for this program will be taped 
for use each Sunday morning during 

President Miller and his family were 
delighted and grateful to receive so 
many Christmas greetings from our stu- 
dents and faculty this season. It is 
their hope that the New Year will be 
a bright one for each of you.

Back To Antietam 

Or, Let's Celebrate The Depression, Too 

That friendly little family spat, the War Between the States, is being 
jubilantly and profitably relived during the Civil War Centennial which 
began January 1, 1961, and will continue until the anniversary of Appo- 
mattox in 1965. 

Everyone in the North and South alike is getting a great deal of fun 
out of the whole thing, and tourist attractions and travel agencies will en- 
joy five of the biggest money-making years in history. The Centennial is 
almost as good as Christmas for American business. 

No attempt is being made to "romanticize" the war, say members of 
the Federal Centennial Commission: chairman, historian Allan Nevins, 
honorary chairman, former President Dwight D. Eisenhower, honor- 
ary vice chairman Richard M. Nixon, and executive director Karl S. Betts. 
The purpose of the Centennial, they believe, is "to give Americans a 
greater understanding and appreciation of the greatest event in their 

To Promote 'Appreciation' 

"Everyone seems to be delighted with this gory tragedy, in retro- 
spect," writes John Conly in The Atlantic, and goes on to review records 
like "March of the First Arkansas Negro Regiment," "New York Volun- 
teer" and "Flight of Doodles." "You can almost smell the smoke," says 

Records and books in profusion contribute much to the celebration. 
Rock 'n Roll songs, helping to put history on a popular level so all can 
understand, feature Rebel yells and such patriotic songs as "Just Before 
the Battle, Mother." 

Civil War games are on sale, networks have scheduled TV Blue-Gray 
spectaculars (paying equal respects to both sides, of course), and battle- 
fields have been restored at great expense and are open to tourists. Chrys- 
ler Corporation built a Valiant called the Dixie Special, available in Con- 
federate Gray. National Distillers came up with the appreciation-promot- 
ing information that General Grant drank none other than Old Crow. 

Wave The Flag 

Take your choice — wave the stars and bars or stars and stripes from 
yachts, cars, poles, or your cap. Flag manufacturers undoubtedly find 
production booming. Crotchety observers of flag-waving, however, noting 
especially how it is practiced south of the Mason-Dixon line, feel that this 
is a symbol of an attitude toward the Negro rather than a good-natured 
souvenir of a national lovers' quarrel. 

Civil War hobbyists are having a heyday. Says Dan Wakefield in 
Nation, "The Battle of Antietam is to them what the 1946 Army-Notre- 
Dame game is to football fans." Re-enactments of all major battles will 
take place, always, of course, emphasizing not commercial or entertain- 
ment value, but educational value, enlightening Americans concerning the 
scope of the struggle to save the Union and to win freedom for Negroes. 
Participants and spectators are expected to have a grand time, with the 
possible exception of Negroes, who may have a hard time finding hotel 
reservations in certain areas. Also, some state Centennial commissions 
hold segregated luncheons, which may create problems for Negro Yankees 
or Rebs after a hard morning's fight. 

Will Heal Wounds 

It is felt that the Centennial will "heal wounds" between North and 
South; the whole endeavor has a kiss-and-make-up theme. States as well 
as the federal government have appropriated fantastic sums for the Cen- 
tennial, feeling it will smooth over any hard feelings which may have been 
incurred during the fray last century at this time. Virginia, for example, 
voted $1,750,000 for the observance. Everyone is being very careful not 
to give the least impression that one side was nobler than the other, or that 
either made any really important mistakes. 

The Commission feels that existing prejudice will be replaced by fact 
by 1965. All things will be made right. The North may have won the 
war, says Karl Betts, but the South, the most enthusiastic over the celebra- 
tion, is going to win the Centennial! 

Lincoln's Death Not Celebrated 

It is not now deemed useful to re-enact Lincoln's assassination, not 
even to educate America in "appreciating and understanding" this tragic 
event. Apparently Lincoln belongs to the ages, like a sacred cow, but it is 
all right to exploit mere light tragedies like the Battle of Gettysburg. 

Sherman's March to the Sea, too, seems somewhat unfeasible. And 
the question has arisen as to what will be done with the citizens of Rodney, 
Mississippi, during their bombardment celebration. Wakefield suggests 
calling in the Civil Defense and the AEC. 

Killjoys Infiltrate Observance 

There are those who think the Centennial is a vulgar display. Frank 
G. Dawson, a Yale student, is quoted in Newsweek as considering it "sad 
to contemplate the money, energy and talent expended on the resurrection 
of national shame and agony." Killjoys, found chiefly among serious- 
minded college students and sarcastic journalists, simply feel that a war is 
not a thing to have fun over, even a century later. 

However, it seems the Centennial is here to stay for three more years. 
We had all better get used to this new American pastime, for, says Dan 
Wakefield, the Civil War "may replace night baseball by 1965." (JMK) 

Letters To Trie Editor 

Alumnus Agrees With KLK 
To the Editor of La Vie: 

Kris Kreider's editorial of November 
16 was right up to a point. LVC does 
have a dead social life — on the surface. 
. . .the apathetic people are a cause, not 
an effect. 

The main reasons that LVC is not 
what one would call a social paradise can 
be found by checking the records. The 
majority of students at Valley are not 
from the upper monetary echelon; the 
majority of music majors go home to 
earn tuition money; the majority of [pre- 
ministerial students! go home to preach 
to earn money for tuition. The majority 
of students can not afford a car. 

Nevertheless it is possible to have a 
good time and an adequate social life with- 
out the aid of unlimited funds and a car. 
Many students in the past have proved 

Some possible solutions which could 
be tried on the campus social scene are: 
start a humor magazine and get up a car 
pool for sports events. Also, what's the 
matter with Hot Dog's?

Wood Tells Students 
Of Stars 1 Life Cycle 

The earth is five billion years old, a 
mere child compared with the ancient 16 
billion-year-old universe, said Dr. Frank 
Wood in his Monday night lecture, "The 
Birth, Life and Death of the Stars." 

Dr. Wood said the story of the uni- 
verse is one of beginnings and endings, 
and the quest of astronomy and related 
physical sciences is to determine where 
stars come from and what will be their 

He cited radioactivity tests of rocks as 
the best method of arriving at the age of 
the earth, since uranium through radioac- 
tive decay changes to lead at a fixed rate. 

Know More About Sun 

Knowledge about the sun, said Dr. 
Wood, is more certain than what is 
known about the earth. New knowledge 
in the field of nuclear physics has en- 
abled scientists to tell the age of the sun, 
a giant atomic reactor, by calculating the 
rate at which the sun loses mass in its 
atomic reactions. The sun generates a 
phenomenal four million tons per second 
of energy — and is not expected to "burn 
out" for billions of years. Dr. Wood de- 
scribed the sun as a "nice, normal, stable 
star" not likely to let us down. Like the 
earth, it is about 5 billion years old. 

When the sun finally does lose its hy- 
drogen (the chief energy-producing ele- 
ment), it will probably follow a regular 
pattern for the death of a star — its center 
will become hotter and its outside cooler. 
It is then called a "red giant"; when it 
cools off further, it is called a "white 
dwarf," and eventually it becomes just a 
rotating corpse — a cold, solid mass of 

How Stars Are Born 
Stars bigger than the sun, which emit 
energy faster than would the sun, become 
super giants" upon their demise. Super 
giants emit heavy elements which become 
clouds of dust and gas. Under certain 
conditions these clouds contract into glo- 
bules. When these attain a greater den- 
sity and temperature, nuclear reactions 
may take place, and a star is born. 

Stars formed in this way are known as 
"second generation" stars. The sun is 
thought to be of such an origin, and Dr. 
Wood suggested that "the calcium in our 
bones was probably formed in some super 
giant star" ages ago. 

The universe is generally dated at 10 
million years, said Dr. Wood, but he 
pointed out that one of the interesting 
problems of astronomy is that some star 
clusters which have been recently ob- 
served are calculated to be at least 16 
billion years old. 

Electronic computers are responsible 
for much of the information gleaned 
about the universe. They are able to de- 
termine quickly what would ordinarily 
take several human lifetimes to compute.

Stop Dorm Noise 

"If you're big enough to make the spitball, you're big enough to 
throw it" is advice appropriate for all resident women complaining of 
noise in the dormitory. More simply, if you're able to complain about the 
noise, you are also able to do something to stop it. 

Too many students depend on their hall presidents to give warnings 
and demerits for violations of quiet hours. These people obviously are 
using the president as a shield because they are afraid that their friends 
might be hurt, angry, and perhaps lost if they themselves were to deliver 
the warnings and demerits. 

This, of course, leaves a hall president in quite a busy tizzy. She may 
be studying quietly when in rushes a messenger of mercy to summon her to 
the scene of disturbing noise and bedlam. (The president, who lives at the 
other end of the hall or perhaps has just returned to her room, is not aware 
of the noise; it may not be disturbing her or even reaching her.) When the 
messenger and the president arrive at the room, either the noise has com- 
pletely died down and all is forgiven, or the violators have cooked up a 
sturdy alibi to confuse everyone concerned. 

RWSGA is your governing body. Each one of you is a member of it, 
and as a member you do have the right to give warnings and demerits to 
other resident women. Unless you're willing to start helping the president 
instead of hindering her, the problem may be slow to disappear. But with 
a conscious effort by all resident women, the complaints and the noise will 
stop entirely. (Judy Keiper) 

La Vie Looks Off Campus 

What's Going On 
At Other Schools? 

It's easy to get so wrapped up in LVC comings and goings that we 
often are unaware of the doings on the national collegiate scene. Let's look 
what's going on elsewhere on college campuses, as reported by the Associ 
ated Collegiate Press. 

Each One Teach One 

A group of Washington University stu- 
dents is hard at work this year trying to 
teach reading and writing to some of the 
73,000 persons in St. Louis unable to read 
simple grocery labels or street signs. 

As described by STUDENT LIFE, the 
campus semi-weekly, participants in the 
Campus Community Service project will 
use the "each one teach one" (or Lau- 
bach) method for teaching literacy. 

A nine-hour training program will in- 
clude briefings in psychology, sociology, 
and human relations as well as training in 
how to teach basic reading and writing 
to illiterates. 

After training, each teacher will be 
qualified to take a pupil about one hour 
a week. 

If the program is successful, pupils will 
be able to read street signs, want ads and 
grocery labels after two months and most 
of a nontechnical newspaper after six 

Roar, Lion, Roar! 

It's hardly safe for a lion on the cam- 
pus these days. 

The University of Southern California 
DAILY TROIAN reports: 

Most lions live in the jungle and have 
very few problems, but a lion at USC has 
a real dilemma. 

He's the stone lion who lives on the 
SAE front lawn. In two weeks he has been 
painted red, then black, has been encased 

in a concrete block, and finally was tarred 
and feathered. 

Most lions would give up in disgust 
and return to the jungle, but the SAE lion 
hasn't even turned up his nose at this 
treatment. He hasn't got a nose. It was 
knocked off with a sledge hammer two 
years ago. 

Many ways have been discussed by the 
chapter to defend its mascot, but the one 
with the most promise seems to be to buy 
him a set of dentures — and teach him to 

Texans Vote Yes On 

University of Texas students have voted 
five to three for integration of athletics. 

In the general election this fall, a Ne- 
gro student was elected to a campus polit- 
ical office for the first time. 

Results of the referendum tabulated by 
location of voting boxes indicated that, of 
all schools, only the College of Business 
Administration voted against athletic in- 

Total vote on the issue of "allowing 
participation of capable athletes of all 
races in the University's intercollegiate 
athletic program" was 5,132 for and 
3,293 against. 

Gwen Gordan, candidate for arts and 
science assemblyman, was elected by a 
total of 1,424 votes as one of four to be 
selected from a field of ten. 

She is one of about 300 Negroes who 
attend classes at the University.

Dutch Flier 


The LVC cage squad has now evened its seasonal record at 3-3, so 
let's take a quick look at a few of the statistics compiled so far. The Dutch- 
men, in compiling their 3-3 record, have taken decisions from Upsala 
(92-67), Muhlenberg (85-62), and Moravian (74-71), while losing to 
Elizabethtown in the season's opener (66-47), to Susequehanna U. in an 
overtime contest (67-62), and to Army at West Point (79-61). The 
Dutchmen have compiled a total of 417 points on 178 field goals and 67 
foul shots, compared to 491 scored by the opposition. 

In the individual scoring Hi Fitzgerald leads the team with an even 
100 on 41 field goals and 18 foul shots followed by Art Forstater with 91 
and Bill Koch with 81. Koch leads the team on foul shooting accuracy 
with a 15 for 18 total and Forstater leads the team on total foul shots 
made with 23. 

Leading the team in field goals is Fitzgerald with 41 followed bv 
Forstater (34) and Koch (33).

Debut In Spain 
Since making his debut in Barcelona 
in 1934, Mr. de la Torre has toured regu- 
larly throughout South America, the Uni- 
ted States and Canada, and has frequently 
played on radio and television. He ha?

LVC Wrestlers Yield 
To Muhlenberg Mules

match to Muhlenberg last Wednesday 
night at Allentown. 

In the 123 pound class, George Wea-

frosh Dave Mahler manhandled Muhlen- 
berg's Fegelein 12-4, but Joe Rutter 
dropped the 157 pound class on a 3-2 
count with the deciding point going to 
Muhlenberg on riding time. 

Jay Kreider put LV out in front for the 
last time on an 8-6 decision in the 167

Flying Dutchmen 
Defeat Greyhounds 

The Flying Dutchmen continued their winning ways last Saturday 
night, January 6, against the Moravian College Greyhounds. 
Trailing by 8-0 early in the game LV 

stormed back to tie it up on field goals by 
Chuck Ebersole and Bill Koch, each scor- 
ing twice. Although Moravian regained 
the lead momentarily, LV, led by Koch 
and Hi Fitzgerald, fought its way back 
into the lead and left the floor at the half 
with a 33-30 edge. 

In the second half it was Moravian's 
turn to come from behind. After trailing 
by as many as nine points, Ken Zavacky 
and Bill Kosman pulled Moravian back 
within striking distance. Finally, with the 
score 70-69 LVC, co-captain Hank Van 
de Water dropped two through the hoop 
to give Valley a five point lead with only 
seconds remaining. Although Moravian 
scored once more, the Dutchmen brought 
their seasonal record to 3-3 with the 74- 
71 win. 

Leading the Dutchmen in scoring for 
the second consecutive game was Hi Fitz- 
gerald with 20 points on eight field goals 
and four foul shots. He was followed by 
freshman Bill Koch with 18 and Art For- 
stater with 12. The leaders for Mora- 
vian were Ken Zavacky with 25 and Dick 
Kosman with 18. They were followed 
by Tim Marsden and Ray Pfeiffer with 
12 apiece.

Valley Whips Mules 
With 85-62 Conquest 

LVC, bouncing back from a 1-3 pre- 
Christmas record, came back to post a 
decisive win over Muhlenberg College. 

The Dutchmen put 8 points on the 
board before Muhlenberg scored their 
first. By using a pressing defense LV 
forced the Mules in many ball handling 
errors and piled up a 41-26 half-time 

In the second half, led by Hi Fitzger- 
ald's 18 point splurge, the Dutchmen con- 
tinued to pour it on the favored Mules. 
At the final buzzer the score stood 85-62 

In the game that saw all of Coach 
Grider's men in action, the Dutchmen 
had four men in double figures compared 
to one for the Mules. Hi Fitzgerald led 
the scoring parade with 23 markers fol- 
lowed by Art Forstater with 18, Fresh- 
man Bill Koch with 15 and Chuck Eber- 
sole with 12. Muhlenberg was led by 
Stuhmuller with 11.

Ehrhart, Martin Foss and Benjamin Rich- 
ards presented a dialogue between these 
two schools beginning at 4 p.m. Wednes- 
day in the Snack Bar.

La Vie Inquires 

Students Discuss 
Fallout Shelters 


Today the feeling about fallout shelters seems to be that it is more an 
excellent profitmaking enterprise than a serious attempt to save lives in the 
event that an atomic attack should take place. Also, many people are ques- 
tioning the value of having them, at all. 

La Vie Inquires questioned students about their feelings on the ques- 
tion, would you build a fallout shelter if you had your own home and the 
money for it? 

Greg Stanson: "No, I don't think I 
would. I feel that the building of shelters 
should be a community effort — the gov- 
ernment should do it. If the government 
doesn't feel that it is important enough, I 
don't think I'd like to live in a citizenless 

Bob Brill: "If I had the money, I'd 
build one — it can't hurt." 

David Grove: "No, I'd rather die than 
live in a mutilated world. And there are 
much better things to spend the money 

Sue Wolfe: "No, I don't like the idea 
of having to have to shoot your neighbor 
to keep the shelter for yourself, and there 
wouldn't be that much to come out to. 
Man's morals and morale would be non- 
existent by that time." 

Herman Meyers: "No, I feel that if a 
fallout shelter is to be built at all, it 
should be done by the central or state 
governments. I strongly agree with many 
critics that a fallout shelter can save you 
for only such a short length of time." 

Hannah Roos: "Yes. No matter what 
kind of a world it would be that we come 
out to, there will be something, and there 
will be a chance to begin anew. The drive 
to survive is one of the basic human 

Doug Shaw: "No, I wouldn't. If it's 
as big a cataclysm as it is supposed to be, 
there's not going to be too much to live 
for. Also, I don't think either govern- 
ment is foolish enough to touch it off."

Beware! Beware! Beware! February 
promises to enter with great catastrophe, 
reeking havoc throughout the world. Ne- 
palese astrologers have predicted an im- 
pending configuration of seven or eight 
planets making their appearance in the 
sign of Capricorn. The last time this 
happened India was plagued by war and 
floods. That was 3,000 years ago. Oh, 

* * * 

Understand a mid-western company has 
come out with his-and-her fallout shel- 
ters. Now not only is there nothing to 
come up to, there is nothing to go down 

* * * 

According to Dutch Flier "Koch leads 
the team on foul shooting accuracy." 
Glad to hear the players also enjoy hunt- 
ing ducks. 

* * * 

SAC B-58's will soon have installed a 
warning system whereby a recorded fe- 
male voice will immediately report any 
emergency situation which arises within 
the plane. 

This opens up many possibilities for 
practical applications in everyday life. For 
instance, consider driving your car to the 
commands of a soft, alluring voice re- 
porting on such a romantic situation as 
"I'm sorry to bother you, darling, but 
your gas tank is empty." 

Or, in this age of super-bombs and su- 
per-patriots, we might hear voices echo- 
ing cries of "To shelter, to shelter, the 
H-bombs are coming!" Also the evening 
weather girl report might be replaced by 
an automatic evening fallout girl report. 

Birchites might sit in the comforts of 
their isolationalism and listen to a record- 
ed listing of the top ten subversive groups 
of the week.

Any truth to the rumor that the base- 
ment of the library will be used as a 
parking lot for the faculty? 

Dr. Leamon Presents 
Impressions Of LVC 

"I haven't any skeletons I can bring out that would make interesting 
reading," was the comment of Dr. James S. Leamon, assistant professor of 
history at LVC, during a recent interview. 

Dr. Leamon, a New Englander, gradu- 

ated from Bates College in Lewiston, 
Maine. He received his doctorate from 
Brown University while teaching Euro- 
pean and American history survey courses 
for one year at Wartburg College in 

Dr. Leamon is glad to be back in the 
East away from the "flat lands of corn 
fields and hog farms." He is married and 
now lives in Fredericksburg. 

As an outdoorsman, Dr. Leamon is in- 
ested in hiking, skiing, playing tennis, and 
watching football and baseball games. He 
spent two years in the Navy at Waikiki, 
Hawaii, and now he enjoys building mod- 
el ships. Under the guidance of Coach 
Grider he has learned to play squash. Dr. 
Leamon promises to follow the lead of 
the football team by granting his students 
a day off from his classes if and when 
he ever beats him. 

Dr. Leamon stated that he is "favor- 
ably impressed" with the student body 
and the library. He sees a "dynamic air" 
and "willingness for experimentation, self- 
evaluation and correction" at LVC. To 
him the charge of provinciality is basic- 
ly a "perennial gripe of students" similar 
to those he experienced at Bates College. 

Dr. Leamon feels that national fraterni- 
ties would not improve the social life on 
the campus; rather, they would bring in 
outside pressures which have caused the 
decadence of sound race relations in cases 
where the fraternities were run by South- 
erners. (NB) 

Understand we have a Religious Em- 
phasis Week coming up. I think it's nice 
that we emphasize religion for a whole 
week. Just wondering, however, what it 
is that we emphasize the rest of the year?

No Parking Problem For 
This Commuter 

Top challenger for the student com- 
muters' record may be the Rev. G. A. 
Gough of Wichita, Kansas. 

The 46-year-old minister takes a train 
each Sunday evening for East Lansing, 
Michigan, where he attends classes Mon- 
day night through Tuesday night. 

On Wednesday he boards a plane for 
the 800-mile trip back to Kansas, arriving 
in time to preach that evening. 

The minister has one more term's class- 
work to complete work toward a doc- 
torate in the college of education's pro- 
gram in pastoral counseling. He studied 
at the University last spring using the 
same travel system. 

The reason? MSU had the curriculum 
he wanted. 

Kalamazoo Students Will 
Study Abroad 

Eleven weeks of study abroad, 
at no extra cost, and 11 weeks of work 
are now requirements for Kalamazoo Col- 
lege students. 

These are two features of a quarter 
plan initiated at the Michigan college this 

School will be conducted all year round, 
with four quarters of eleven weeks each. 
Students will take three classes per quar- 
ter, each meeting five days a week. 

A two-million-dollar grant makes it 
possible for each student to study over- 
seas for at least one quarter with no add- 
ed expense. This will usually be in the 
junior year, in such cities as Bonn, Ma- 
drid and Bogota. 

At least another quarter will be spent 
in doing work related to the student's field 
of study. For example, a business student 
might be placed in an office and a pre- 
medical student in a hospital job. 

During the senior year, students will 
spend one quarter in an off-campus proj- 
ect, probably a thesis. 

One advantage the administration anti- 
cipates with the quarter plan is that more 
students will be able to attend the school 
without enlargement of facilities. The 
program will also enable some students to 
finish college in one year. 

Moderates Of The World, 

Overwhelmed by liberal and conserva-

Try this moderates' all-purpose letter

in response to the DAILY CALIFOR- 
NIAN'S clarion call for middle-of-the- 
road opinion: 

". . .Here are all the opinions which I 
have that I can think of: 

"1. All things (regardless of race, 
creed, or place of national origin) should 
be in moderation. 

"2. Everyone should speed slowly in a 
democracy, that is to say, we must stand 
firm by advancing boldly into the future 
under the banner of Justice; that is, we 
shoud turn the other eye for an eye. Or 
something like that. 

"3. We should seek a middle ground 
on the question of abolishing the House 
Committee on Un-American Activities; 
for example, we could permit the Com- 
mittee to remain in existence, but only let 
it trample on the rights of half of the 
'unfriendly' witnesses who come before 
it. . .

I shall send it along to you, in the true

Dean Chen Visits LVC 
To Learn Bond Approach 

Dean Ko-Chung Chen of Taiwan Nor- 
mal University has begun a two-months 
visit to the Laboratory Development Cen- 
ter of the Chemical Bond Approach Proj- 
ect at Lebanon Valley College. 

The main purpose of Dean Chen's visit 
is to obtain sufficient information about 
the operation of the Chemical Bond Ap- 
proach Project so that when he returns 
to Taiwan he can organize a group of 
chemists to begin work on the develop- 
ment of a new course in chemistry. He 
is working with Dr. H. A. Neidig, chair- 
man of the department of chemistry at 
Lebanon Valley and a director of the 
CBA Project. 

Currently, Chen is on leave of absence 
from his duties as Dean of the College of 
Science, Taiwan Normal University, and 
as Dean of the Graduate School and Act-

LV Debate Society 
Accumulates Wins 


At the invitation of the National Sci- 
Tenth Pacific Science Conference held in 
Honolulu, Hawaii, in August, 1961. His 
trip was extended to include a six-month 
tour of the United States as a visiting 
Professor under the joint sponsorship of 
the National Academy of Sciences and 
the Asia Foundation. 

Dean Chen received his bachelor of sci- 
ence degree at Yale University and his 
master of science and doctor of philoso- 
phy degrees in chemistry at the University 
of Chicago. He was the director of the 
National Institute for Compilation and 
Translation where he supervised a staff of 
over 200 people. 

Concert Choir Tours 
Five Eastern States 

The Lebanon Valley College Concert Choir, under the direction of 
Pierce A. Getz, is now on its concert tour through eastern Pennsylvania, 
Maryland, Delaware, New Jersey and New York. The choir began its toui 
Friday, February 2, and will return Sunday, February 11. 

For this year's tour the choir prepared 
two separate programs. Program A is an 
all-sacred concert which utilizes a pre- 
Reformation melody, a West Indian carol, 
spirituals, and compositions by Bach, 
Bechler, Berger, Gabrieli, Scarlatti, 
Schuetz, Schumann, and Williams. This 
program is designed primarily for church 

Program B is a sacred-secular concert 
including some of the numbers from pro- 
gram A and adding Brahms' "Liebeslieder 
Waltzes" and compositions by Debussy, 
Scott, and Simone. Sandra Stetler 
will sing Bishop's "Lo, Hear the Gentle 
Lark" with a flute obligato played by 

Marlin Houck. The choir will be accom- 
panied by Dennis Sweigart, pianist, and a 
ten-piece chamber orchestra. 

The concert tour itinerary calls for 
stops at Wilmington, Delaware, February 
2; Stewartstown, Pa., February 3; Han- 
over and New Holland, February 4; Bal- 
timore, Md., February 5; Glenside, Pa., 
February 6; Salem, New Jersey, February 
7; Billport, Long Island, February 8; 
Hillsdale, New Jersey; and the Inter- 
church Center of Riverside Church, New 
York City, February 9; Locust Valley, 
Long Island, February 10; and Palmer- 
ton, Pa., February 11. 

The debate team will attempt to continue its winning streak tomor- 
row and Saturday at Franklin and Marshall College, Lancaster. The team 
has won eight out of twelve debates this year, with the affirmative winning 
five out of six and the negative winning three out of six. 

Pictured above are the members who 
will be debating at Franklin and Marshall: 
Rowland Barnes, Curt Miller, Ray Wen- 
ger, president, and Jim Dressel. 

Their most recent victory was at Eli- 
zabethtown College, January 9, when Ray 
Wenger, Debate Society president, and 
Sandy Hock presented the affirmative and 
| Jim Dressel and Rowland Barnes, the 
I negative of this year's national debate 
i topic — Resolved: That labor organizations 
should be under the jurisdiction of anti- 
trust legislation. 

LV debaters scored high at Temple 
University's annual Novice Debate Tour- 
nament in December. Only first-year 
members of college debating teams were 
eligible for participation in this tourna- 
ment. Valley's team entered three de- 
bates, with the affirmative duo, Curt Mil- 
ler and Rosalie Wida, winning all three. 
Edward Laich and Susette Werni for the 
negative won one. 

President Ray Wenger accompanied the 
team to Temple and judged three of the 
other colleges' competitions. 

Lebanon Valley will host a spring de- 
bate tournament here on campus, Satur- 
day, March 17. This competition will 
consist of three rounds of debate with six 
colleges participating. 

Several members of the Concert Choir prepare to leave on their current tour. 
Standing left to right they are: Sandi Stetler, Betty Perkins, Shirley Brown, Isobel 
Miller, Pat Shonk, Nancy Darringer, and Toby Bamhart

Martin Frant To Lecture 
To Campus Affiliate ACS 

The Lebanon Valley College Student 
Affiliate of the American Chemistry So- 
ciety will hold a Meeting in Miniature on 
Monday, February 12, in conjunction 
with representatives of Franklin and 
Marshall and Elizabethtown Colleges. 

A tour of the labs will follow the din- 
ner meeting in the College Dining Hall. 
Dr. Martin Frant, research chemist as- 
sociated with Aircraft Marine Products, 
at Harrisburg, will later present a lecture 
in the Science Hall. 

Dr. Frant received his B.S. from 
Brooklyn College and his M.S. and Ph.D. 
from Western Reserve University. Be- 
fore joining AMP, he had had much pre- 
vious experience in the field of organo- 
mercurials and quaternary ammonium 

Co-chairman of last year's Gordon Re- 
search Conference on Electrodisposition 
he is chairman of the American Electro- 
plater's Society Papers Awards Commit- 
tee. Dr. Frant is vice-president of the 
local AES Branch and secretary of the 
Southeastern Pennsylvania Section of the 
American Chemical Society. He has re- 
cently written the chapter dealing with 
electrodisposition for a forthcoming book 
on gold and is currently writing "The 
Protective Action of Metallic Coatings" 
for a British version of the "Corrosion 
Handbook." Other professional activities 
include membership in the Chemists' 
Club. Electrochemical Society, the In- 
stitute of Metal Finishing, and Sigma Xi. 

Dean Flinchbaugh, ACS Club presi- 
dent, announced that the annual dinner- 
dance will be held at the Palmyra Legion 
with the music provided by Johnny Leff- 
ler. The organization earns money for 
this event by the sale of soft drinks dur- 
ing lab periods. 

Want To Travel Abroad? 

In accordance with a recommenda- 
tion of a New Frontiers Committee a 
central depository and information cen- 
ter is being established where travel fold- 
ers, announcements of scholarships, and 
information on opportunities for foreign 
study will be available to both students 
and faculty. This depository will be lo- 
cated in the office of the Dean of Men. 

The senior class will meet at 8 p.m., 
Monday, February 12, in Philo Hall, 
to choose the entree for the Senior 
Dinner and to order Commencement 
announcements. All seniors, including 
first semester seniors, should attend.

La Vie Collegienne t* published on alternate Thursdays by the students of Lebanon Valley

The housewife finds that she has only eleven eggs instead of the indi- 
cated dozen after a grocery store excursion. She is then given thirteen the 
next time she purchases a dozen if the grocer is informed of the error. 

If a skirt is given as a present and by some misfortune it does not fit, 
the recipient may return it to the store where it was purchased. Suppose 
the new skirt she selects costs five dollars less than the present. This person 
is then usually given a credit slip for five dollars. At any time she may 
return to the store with five dollars credit to her name. 

Why can't Lebanon Valley use this system? My first semester here I 
carried 16 hours which is one fewer than the maximum for the class of 
1963. The second semester was a repetition of the first. But, the fifth 
semester I carried 18 hours, one over the maximum. I then was given a 
bill for $32 for the extra hour (incidentally, which I did pay). Why? 

It seems to me that we shoud use the law of compensation in this 
situation: what is added to one semester can be subtracted from another. 
The total would not be changed. (KLK) 

Balance Old and New 

How refreshing it is to be enrolled in a course where contemporary 
theories and authors are studied! Most of our education consists in delving 
into the past to gain perspective into the makeup of our present age. But 
when students come to graduate from college they often find to their dis- 
may that they knew very little about what is going on in the present as far 
as philosophical, literary, political, or other fields of thought are con- 

Students know about Dante, Aristotle, Adam Smith, Darwin, Milton, 
Shakespeare and St. Augustine, but how much do they know about Eliot, 
Faulkner, Russell, existentialism, Ionesco, or Tillich? Most of us would 
wrinkle our brows if asked to name several contemporary greats in various 
areas and give a synopsis of their thought. 

Anything after the Civil War is skimmed over in a few phrases in 
lectures. One can enroll at LVC for a mere semester in contemporary 
courses, but there is time for only a brief survey, not real study of these 

The study of the past is helpful in understanding the present, if we have 
some concrete idea of what the present actually consists of. So much time 
is spent, however, on the past that we never get around to the here and 
now. For example, here at LVC a whole year is devoted to one author, 
Shakespeare, while the complete gamut of American literature is scanned 
in the same period of time. Likewise, Chaucer is allotted a whole semes- 
ter, while the vast material of contemporary literature is also crowded into 
a semester, and a two-hour course at that! 

There should be a balance between the present and the past, with a 
more equitable distribution of emphasis. As things are, the meaning of the 
word contemporary, "living or existing at the same time," is rendered inap- 

We should know more about the best of the thinkers and authors who 
are making history now, or made their contributions in years we can 
remember. (JMK)

Letters To Trie Editor 

To the Editor of La Vie: 

One thing that has been sorely needed 
for a long time on this campus is a new 
auditorium-conservatory. The practice 
rooms are inadequate and poorly equip- 
ped from an acoustic standpoint. 

When a guest artist must temporarily 
call a concert to a halt because of the 
"competition" given to him by the ugly 
dissonances of banging pipes, it is time 
that something be done. 

I was, as I am sure others were, em- 
barrassed for the very gracious Mr. de la 
Torre who was forced to pause for a few 
moments in the middle of a number be- 
cause the noise of the pipes drowned out 
completely the artistic strains of his guitar 
in our outdated eyesore — and earsore of 
an auditorium. 



Contemporary Scene 

Tom J. Holmes 

Overshadowed by disillusionment, I 
have returned from the mountain-top, 
placed my white robe back in storage, 
and lost all faith in Indian astrologers, 
Nepalese astrologers, the Aetherius Soci- 
ety of England and a certain cult in Cali- 

Having thus discarded my robe, I can 
return to pursuing the more liberal re- 
forms of the New Frontier. And yet I 
cannot quite" comprehend how relaxing in 
a rocking chair and enjoying the delights 
of a glass of warm milk is indicative of 
creeping socialism. 

Speaking of the New Frontier, remem- 
ber those weekend football games up at 
the old homestead? At the time every- 
one thought it was part of Our Leader's 
physical fitness program. Not so — seems 
whoever won got to run the country for a

This is the age of the epic. It is also 
an age in which the ecumenical spirit of 
New Delhi prevails. Out of these two 
moods only one possible result could be 
conceived, and I have been waiting for 
some time to read of this endeavor being 
undertaken. Now it has come to pass for, 
behold, to the south of Rome in the 
country of Italy a movie has been born 
which is called The Bible. 

Yea, brethren, now on the silver screen 
will appear the Bible in all its glory. You 
will thrill to the spectacle of the creation, 
feel the agony of a nation in captivity, 
swell with elation as Moses leads his peo- 
ple onward, be shocked by the rape of 
Bathsheba (no one cast yet), and over- 
whelmed by the revolt of the Maccabees. 

Now you can look on in awe at the 
beauty of the Nativity, actually feel your- 
self a part of the Crucifixion, and be spir- 
itually uplifted as Christ ascends into 
Heaven (still no one cast). 

This is The Bible, friends, and it takes 
only twelve (12) hours to get through. 
Not even the RSV can boast that. The 
film will conveniently be divided into 
three parts (if you have already seen Ten 
Comandmente, omit part two). 

So far Psalms will be left out (the film 
is obviously not of a pastoral nature). I 
am anxious to see how other non-epic- 
producing writings are treated. Perhaps 
one scene could have a solitary figure 
dragging himself across the desert to a 
background of Charlton Heston reading 
from Eccleisastes. 

Better yet, why not turn the whole 
thing into a musical. Think of the possi- 
bilities emanating from such eye-catching 
titles as "The Words of Lemuel, King of 
Massa, Which His Mother Taught Him," 
or 'The Answer of Zophar the Naama- 
thite." And why not the Sermon on the 
Mount be delivered to a Dave Brubeck 

I would question the divine origin of 
such a project. I would question it in that 
I have visions of the producer's attitude 
toward the whole thing as being "You go 
Yahweh and I'll go mine."

An About Face 

After spending several hours questioning members of the La Vie staff 
as to the topic of this issue's editorial, I decided that I would make an 
about face this time and discuss Lebanon Valley College's attributes. 

Too many times our small gripes and grievances are blown up to such 
a degree that we overlook the good. It is so very easy to complain about 
rules and regulations, or of a "suitcase college," of an unexciting social life, 
and of shades of provincialism. A negative attitude will never help us to 
enjoy college life to its fullest. 

It has been often said that Lebanon Valley is a friendly college. This 
is one of the factors that contributes to its goodness. We have an advantage 
over large universities. With a small number of varying and diverse per- 
sonalities, we can make many more close friendships. 

The enthusiasm of the students is tremendous. This fact is very evi- 
dent at sports events and in classroom discussions. Enthusiasm keeps us 
going when times seem dull. An old adage will sum up what I am trying 
to say here; that interest (enthusiasm) breeds success. 

Lebanon Valley has an excellent faculty. I believe that most of these 
instructors are truly dedicated individuals. Because of the small size of our 
classrooms, we are able to come to a closer and more friendly relationship 
with our professors. 

Our college proposes a rigorous course of study. We are not allowed 
to become intellectually "soft." Mental prowess is so desperately needed 
in this age of competitiveness. 

Certainly, even with all these favorable qualities, our college has 
room for improvement. The only way to let our faculty and administration 
know our complaints and criticisms is to tell them. Write to this news- 
paper and its staff, talk with professors and the Deans. 

The only way that we can make our college a better one is to let 
those in authority know about our dislikes and opinions. Grumblings and 
whispering among our own small groups will not achieve what we want. 


La Vie Inquires 

Students Express 
Opinions of La Vie 

The beginning of the semester is a good time to review past perform- 
ance with a view to improving work in the coming semester. With this in 
mind, La Vie Inquires asked the students, what do you think could be 
done to improve La Vie? 

Julie Johnston: "I think that having 
one issue of La Vie that is written by 
the faculty would be unique and interest- 

Carl Sayers: "Basically La Vie is a 
good small college newspaper, but it could 
be improved by advertising coming events 
and by taking an unbiased stand on col- 
lege issues." 

Bill Burkett: "I'm quite satisfied with 
the publication as it is. It seems to cover 
the campus activities well and presents its 
material in an interesting fashion. I know, 
however, from but a little experience, that 
these newspaper staffs never have enough 
help. My guess is they could use a hand." 

Sandy Diener: "I always enjoyed the 
clever cartoons that John Hutchcroft 
drew. What happened to them? Also, 
why not have a regular column of ex- 
change articles from other colleges?" 

Charley Martin: "I think La Vie is ba- 
sically good, but would be improved by 
having more sports coverage, more pic- 
tures, and more controversial editorials. 
The editors should take stands on campus 
issues and help encourage school spirit." 

Julie Lied: "A moderate amount of hu- 
mor could be interjected among the pages 
of La Vie to brighten it up. However, an 
excessive amount would lower the jour- 
nalistic level which the paper has at- 

Linda Gatchel: "On the whole, it's a 
fine publication as it is now. How about 
a column for non-staff members to con- 

planning their own super-epic on the En- 
cyclopaedia Britannica. 

Understand a certain faculty member, 
doing penance for a grievous misdeed, has 
been lighting candles in front of her pic- 
ture of Thomas Jefferson all week. Seems 
she forgot FDR's birthday.

tain poetry, humor, etc." 

John Williams: "There could be more 
editorials dealing with the campus, rather 
than so many off-campus events, such as 
the Civil War Centennial." 

Marv Hendricks: "I think they should 
get more people to write the articles, that 
is, more student opinion, presenting the 
viewpoints of people in different majors 
and day students." 

Dolores Mallery: "I find La Vie much 
to my liking; however, I believe the addi- 
tion of some local color to the editorial 
page in particular would make it much 
more enjoyable. Ours is a friendly cam- 
pus. A quick glance of many letters to 
the editor and even the editorials them- 
selves do not often give this impression. 
Also, I would like to see more lightly en- 
tertaining articles like book reviews and 
short stories." 

Sallie Gerhart: "La Vie could consider 
having senior "snaps" every month. And 
I would like to see La Vie come out ev- 
ery month at a scheduled time! Articles 
which provoke controversy make good 
reading and certainly don't hurt the stat- 
ure of the paper. A little publicity won't 
hurt, either."

Delphian got an early start by inviting 
little sisters to accompany their big sisters 
to the society's Christmas program and 
party. Most recently they are conducting 
a "Projects for Little Sisters" campaign 
in which those interested perform some 
service for Delphian. Hannah Pisle, chair- 
man of the Pledge Committee, outlines 
the procedure, "Delphian will be accept- 
ing a limited number of pledges not to ex- 
ceed twenty-nine girls. Pledges will be ac- 
cepted on the basis of their projects, re- 
ports from big sisters, and vote of the 
members." Those selected for member- 
ship will undergo a week-long informal 
initiation and then a formal initiation in

With most of the attention going to the varsity basketball squad 
during this time of year, one group of athletes seems to go almost com- 
pletely unnoticed. I speak of the JV basketball squad. 

These fellows usually are just finishing up when the fans start to ar- 
rive. It must be mentioned, however, that this squad, coached by George 
Mayhoffer, is undefeated in seven consecutive games this season. 

Their wins have come over E-town (95-75 and 62-42), Hershey 
Junior College (62-55 and 58-53), Moravian (62-50), Gettysburg (59-54) 
and Albright (70-54). 

Standouts all season have been freshman Dale Hains, sophomores 
"Big John" Witter and Terry Lenker, freshman Terry Herr and sophomore 
Bob Rhine. Recently freshman Dave Sausser and sophomore John Davis 
have been seeing heavy duty. 

Dale Hains leads the team in scoring with 89 points and is followed 
closely by Terry Herr with 84. John Witter has scored 69 and Terry Lan- 
ker and Bob Rhine have 64 each. 

Hains leads the team in field goals with 40, while Herr leads in foul 
shots attempted (57) and foul shots made (30). 

Hats off to the JV squad and let's hope they keep up the good work.

Reed & Barton Sponsors 
Annual Competition 

During the months of February and 
March, women students of Lebanon Val- 
ley are eligible to participate in a "Silver 
Opinion Competition" conducted by Reed 
and Barton. 

In the competition, an entry form illus- 
trates twelve designs of sterling with nine 
designs of both china and crystal. An 
entrant simply lists what she considers 
the six best combinations of these to 
match certain design periods. Awards 
will be made to those entries matching 
or coming closest to the unanimous selec- 
tions of table-setting editors from three 
of the nation's learding magazines. 

Awards for the contest include a $500 
cash scholarship, first prize; $300 scholar- 
ship, second prize; $250, third; $200, 
fourth, fifth and sixth; and $100 for sev- 
enth, eighth, ninth and tenth. In addition, 
there will be 100 other awards consisting 
of sterling silver, fine china and crystal 
with a retail value of approximately $50. 

Those interested in entering the "Sil- 
ver Opinion Competition" should contact 
Judy Keiper for entry blanks and for 
complete details concerning the competi- 
tion rules. She also has samples of 
twelve of the most popular Reed and Bar- 
ton designs so that entrants can see how 
these sterling patterns actually look. 

Through the opinions on silver design 
expressed by college women competing 
for these scholarships, Reed and Barton 
hopes to compile a valuable library of 
expressions of young American taste.

Wig and Buckle Holds Party 

Wig and Buckle, the campus dramatics 
society, held its annual party on Monday 
evening, January 29, in the auxiliary gym. 

At the last meeting, it was decided that 
Wig and Buckle would be held on the 
third and fourth Mondays of the ensuing 
months. The next meeting will he held in

Lions Trim Dutchmen 
By Narrow Victory 

The Albright matmen pulled out a narrow victory over the Flying 
Dutchmen of Lebanon Valley Saturday night. 

The match began poorly for LV i 

they lost decisions in the first four weight 

George Weaver (123) was decisioned by 
Marino 7-0. Don Kauffman (130) lost a 
tight 3-2 decision on a point awarded to 
Albright's Melnick for riding time. Tom 
Kent (137) was decisioned 10-0 by Kutzer 
and Dave Mahler (147) dropped an excit- 
ing 12-11 match to Pavlos on riding time. 

With LV trailing 12-0, freshman Vince 
Caprio (157) put the Dutchmen on the 
scoreboard with a 5-2 decision which was 
followed by a 9-5 decision by Bob Brill in 
the 167 pound class. 

The turning point came in the 177 
pound class when Jay Kreider, leading 5-4 
with only seconds remaining, was penal- 
ized one point for stalling. The match end- 
ed in a tie making it impossible for Valley 
to win. 

Vance Stouffer ended the match with a 
first period pin bringing the score to 14-

Dutchmen Beat Sho'men 
In Overwhelming Win 

The Dutchmen finally got back on the 
winning track Saturday night by downing 
the Washington College Sho'men in a 
loosely played 72-51 game. 

Russ Urey put the Dutchmen into an 
early lead with two quick buckets and 
they were never in danger from that 
point on. Holding the Sho'men to only 
seven field goals, the Dutchmen took a 
30-20 lead to the lockers at the half. 

In the second half, led by Chuck Eber- 
sole, LVC broke the game wide open. 
Ebersole scored 13 of the 42 points scored 
by the Valley in the second half. Only 
two other ball players hit double figures 
during the contest. Tom Knapp hit five 
field goals and one foul shot for a total of 
11 points and Art Forstater scored 13 on 
three field goals and three fouls. 

Three Washington ball players hit dou- 
ble figures: Cook, 11; Duvall, 11; and 
Carrell, 16. The win brought the Dutch- 
men's season record to five wins and 
seven losses.

Cadets Defeat Dutchmen 
In Heartbreaking Game 

The LVC Flying Dutchmen dropped a 
heartbreaking 80-79 decision to the 
PMC Cadets on the winner's floor Friday 
night. The loss extended the Dutchmen's 
losing streak to four in a row. 

In the first half the score see-sawed 
back and forth with neither team holding 
a commanding margin. Tom Knapp, 
starting his first game of the year, and 
Art Forstater led the Dutchmen to a 
38-36 half time edge with Knapp hitting 
his fourth field goal at the buzzer. 

The Dutchmen came back on the floor 
in the second half and soon had an eight 
point bulge, but with approximately nine 
minutes remaining in the game PMC be- 
gan to pull up. Led by Gino Fuecca, the 
Cadets were soon only a point behind the 

Until the game deciding goal, the score 
fluctuated between a three and a one 
point lead for LV. With only seconds re- 
maining, Tom Palkovics scored the final 
two points of the game making the score 

Fuecca scored 17 of his 19 points in 
his second half splurge and was aided by 
the Cadets' big center, Adelman, who 
dropped in ten during the second half. 
Art Forstater led the Dutchmen with 23 
markers on nine field goals and five foul 
shots. He was followed by Hi Fitzgerald 
with 23, Tom Knapp with 16 and Bill

La Vie Collegienne, Thursday, February 8, 1962 

La Vie Looks Off Campus 

What's Going On 
At Local Schools ? 


As the semester opens amid the long lines of registration, college 
bookstore bills, re-organization of bookshelves and confusion in general, we 
find the LV students becoming more and more self-campus-centered. Foi 
this reason La Vie Collegienne looks off-campus to our neighboring col- 
leges to observe their views and proposed ideas as the spring semester 
begins to blossom. 

In F & M's Student Weekly we read 
that the college administration has an- 
nounced that beginning with this semes- 
ter, final grades will be mailed directly to 
the students rather than to the parents. 
The purpose of this is to promote greater 
responsibility on the part of the students 
for the management of their own academ- 
ic affairs. 

In another phase of the new semester 
F & M has scheduled Fats Domino and 
Duke Ellington for their Snowball Week- 
end to be held on February 24. 

The music department of Elizabeth- 
town College is looking for copies of old 
hymnals, music books and sheet music to 
be used in building up research files for 
music students. Contributions may be sent 
to Dr. Carl Shull at Elizabethtown Col- 

Also from EC, it has been announced 
that the proposed Elizabethtown College 
radio station, expected to be completed 
for the start of the 1962-63 college year, 
intends to present programs suited for stu- 
dents' tastes, featuring music, religious 
and educational programs, weather, world 
and campus newscasts, student opinion- 
surveys and athletic events. The station 
will be on the air seven hours a day, sev- 
en days a week. 

Wilson College presents this thought 
for the semester as quoted from the Pace 
College Press and the Wilson Billboard. 

The prof is my quizmaster; 
I shall not flunk. 

He maketh me to enter the examination 

He leadeth me to an alternate seat. 

He restoreth my fears 

He leadeth me into deep problems for a 
grade's sake 

Yes, though I know not the answers to 
the questions 

I will fear no failure, for the others are 
with me 

Class average will comfort me 

I prepareth my answers before the pres- 
ence of my roommates 

I anointeth my blue book with answers 

My time runneth out 

Surely grades will follow me all the days 
of my life 

And I will dwell in C-burg forever. 
At Albright College the distinguished 

Chinese statesman K. C. Wu was featured 

at the eighth annual Albright College 

Community Convocation on February 3 

and 4. His topic of discussion was "Red 

China's Threat to the Free World." Dr. 

Wu is the former governor of Formosa, 

mayor of Hankow, Chunking, and Shang- 
hai, and acting Minister of Foreign Af- 
fairs and Minister of Information for the 

Chinese Nationalist government until 


And from Muhlenberg comes this seri- 
ous thought for freshmen term paper 
writers. On January 5, a student charged 
with plagiarism on a paper submitted as 
part of the requirements for a course, 
appeared before the court. The student 
pleaded guilty but requested leniency on 
the basis that he felt the plagiarism had 
taken place through ignorance of the 
proper methods for documenting sources 
rather than through any intention to de- 

The court felt in this case it could not 
accept this plea since it had previously 
stated that it is the responsibility of each 
student to be aware of the methods of 
documentation. The court therefore rec- 
ommended two semesters of suspension 
beginning with the spring semester of 
1962 and this recommendation was ac- 
cepted and carried out by the dean of the 

Rey de la Torre Plays 
Early, Modern Numbers 

Review By Betsy Miller 

Students and faculty of Lebanon Val- 
ley and area residents responded enthusi- 
astically to a classic guitar concert pre- 
sented by Rey de la Torre, Tuesday eve- 
ning, February 6, in Engle Hall. 

Mr. de la Torre's program contained 
material used in a typical guitar recital, 
including early transcriptions and con- 
temporary pieces, but largely ignoring the 
Romantic movement. Although tran- 
scriptions have been made of music by 
Chopin, Mendelsohnn, Brahms, Schu- 
mann and other Romantics, it is rarely 
played in concert. 

The guitarist presented three Bach 
transcriptions of violin music, Sarabande 
and Bourree from Sonata No. 2 and 
Fugue from Sonata No. 1. Early guitar 
music in the program included Variations 
on a Theme by Mozart from The Magic 
Flute by Fernando Sor; Three Mexican 
Songs by Manuel Ponce; Choros No. 1 
and Three Studies by Heitor Villa Lobos. 

Contemporary selections were Two 
Venezuelan Waltzes by Antonio Lauro 
and Corranda by Augusti Grau. 

Mr. de la Torre was using a guitar 
made by Hermann Hauser in Germany 
between 1940 and 1950. He mentioned 
that his strings were not as good as pos- 
sible, causing the sound to be less bril- 
liant than he would have liked. 

Clio Holds Fashion Show, Tea 

Clio sponsored a fashion show and tea for its Rush Week for fresh- 
men Thursday, February 1, at 7:00 p.m. in the Carnegie Lounge. 

The script was written by Nan Napier and Sally Marshall. Nan served 
also as the show's commentator. The fashions modeled included dorm 
wear, pajamas and lounging outfits, sport clothing, slacks, Bermudas and 
kilts; classroom apparel, skirts and sweaters, dresses for Sunday and stu- 
dent teaching and cocktail dresses. 

The models for Clio's program were Marilyn Rinker, Fran Niedzia- 
lek, Dee Koncar, Linda Breeze, Brenda Brown, Lois Ensminger, Pat Der- 
byshire, Liz Gluyas, Carol Smith and Marena Colgan. Kay Resch fur- 
nished piano music throughout the fashion presentation. 

Dr. Sara E. Piel, the organization's advisor, and Mrs. Margaret Mil- 
lard, dietitian, helped serve tea following the show. 

His performance was also affected by 
the fact that he had a cold and was ap- 
parently bothered by the heat in Engle 
Hall. He took the Bach Fugue and Sor 
Variations at a pace faster than normal 
and, indeed, seemed to be rushing them. 
Other selections, such as Choros No. 1, 
Corranda and Leyenda by Isaac Albeniz, 
were quite effective. 

Although Mr. de la Torre felt that the 
concert was not one of his best, it was 
well-received, and was one of the few 
classical guitar concerts most of those at- 
tending will have the opportunity to hear.

Love Conquers Faust 

I dreamed I was Jane Austen in my 
Maidenform bustle. This was one of the 
less violent reactions to a newly erected 
sign in the Passion Pit of Vickroy Hall. 
Our campus Davy Crocketts of the Last 
Frontier and their Vickroy dates were 
somewhat unnerved to see the scene of so 
much memorable hedonism turned into a 
Nineteenth Century drawing-room by 
some anonymous party-poopers. 

However, after a few gasps of protest 
the couples once more sank into their 
former wanton ways (and the sofas). Stu- 
dents of Chaucer may rest assured that 
Prioress Eglantine's motto was upheld. 
But the battle-cry of the Vickroy girls 
was slightly paraphrased into "Amor Vin- 
cit Faustia."

Rabbi Jack Stern, Jr., 
Speaks In Chapel Service 

Rabbi Jack Stern, Jr., formally pre- 
sented fifteen volumes of Judaica on be- 
half of the Jewish Chautauqua Society to 
LVC's library during Chapel on Tuesday. 

Dr. Donald Fields conveyed the col- 
lege's thanks and appreciation for the gift 
which includes the following works: The 
Prophetic Faith by Martin Buber; A So- 
cial and Religious History of the Jews, 
eight volumes by Salo Wittmayer Baron; 
Judaism and Christianity, essays on basic 
issues between the two religions by Leo 
Baeck; The Jewish People — Past and 
Present, a four-volume encyclopedia; God 
and Man in Judaism by Leo Baeck. 

Rabbi Stern addressed the faculty and 
students on "The First Commandment" 
and later lectured in a religion class. Hav- 
ing received his A.B. from the University 
of Cincinnati, Rabbi Stern earned his 
M.H.L. degree and ordination at Hebrew 
Union College. He is now spiritual lead- 
er of Temple Emanu-El in Westfield, 
New Jersey. 

Chaplain Henry A. Lewis of Moravian 
College, Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, will

in chapel on February 13. 

Philosophy Prof Speaks 
To SCA On Evolutionism 

Rev. John Winters, a minister of the 
United Church of Christ and a professor 
of philosophy at York Junior College, 
spoke at the SCA weekly meeting Janu- 
ary 31. His topic was "Christians Can 
Be Evolutionists, Too." 

His main premise was that there is no 
conflict between faith and science on the 
matter of organic evolution. In supporting 
this, he paralleled the growth and devel- 
opment of the individual to that of the 
race as a whole and cited Biblical exam- 
ples such as the parable of the mustard 
seed as living proof of the change and 
maturation which man necessarily under- 
takes in his lifetime. 

In a final blending of faith and science, 
he contends that God made man in that 
he is certainly organically reminiscent of 
the animal line, and created man in that 
He gave man a new differential dimension 
— a consciousness of God.

Try This La Vie Puzzle 

Could A Man Crawl 
Under Telephone Wires 
Encircling The Equator? 

The puzzle for this issue is an exercise 
in elementary geometry. 

Suppose that the earth were a perfect 
sphere 25,000 miles in circumference, and 
suppose that it were possible to erect a 
telephone line on poles about the equator. 
Assuming that the telephone wire would 
then form a circle concentric with the 
equator, would a man be able to crawl 
under the wire without touching it if the 
total length of the wire exceeded the cir- 
cumference of the earth by only 100 feet? 

Any student who can solve this puzzle 
should put the solution in the La Vie 
mailbox by February 19. 

We cannot live only 

for ourselves.

Library Gets Grant 
Of $500 From ALA 

Lebanon Valley College is one of 78 
colleges and universities to receive a grant 
from the Association of College and Re- 
search Libraries, a division of the Ameri- 
can Library Association. 

In announcing the receipt of the award, 
Dr. Frederic K. Miller, president, said 
that the $500 grant will be used by the 
library for the purchase of miniature mu- 
sical scores for standard orchestral and 
chamber music recordings which are now 
in the library. Dr. Donald Fields, librar- 
ian, reported that the number of record- 
ings in the library now exceeds 2,700. 
These recordings are available for study 
to all students of the college, but particu- 
larly to those enrolled in the courses of- 
fered by the music department. 

The Grants Program of the American 
Library Association was made possible 
this year through the cooperation of the 
following companies and corporation 
foundations: McGraw - Hill Publishing 
Company, Microcard Foundation, Micro 
Photo, Inc., National Biscuit Company, 
Olin Mathieson Chemical Corporation, 
Pitney-Bowes, Inc., Reader's Digest, Time, 
Inc., and the United States Steel Founda- 
tion, Inc. 

In 1955 the ACRL Grants Program 
was initiated with a grant from the U. S. 
Steel Foundation of $30,000. The pro- 
gram, directed to the general needs of all 
colleges and universities, is for improving 
the quality of library service to higher 
education through fundamental research 
in librarianship, and otherwise aiding in 
the best use of the most modern teaching 
and learning materials.

Modern REW Drama 

Under the direction of Ron Burke, Wig 
and Buckle will present its offering for 
REW on Monday night, February 26. 

"Christ in the Concrete City" was se- 
lected because it is representative of the 
more modernistic trend in religious dra- 
ma. The author, P. W. Turner, is a con- 
temporary British dramatist. 

The play deals with Christ's passion, 
but with the ideas expressed in a modern 
setting. A loosely-constructed one-act 
play, this play can be considered an ex- 
ample of "experimental theater." The 
characters have no designated roles and 
may switch from one part to another dur- 
ing the changes of scenes. There is no 
curtain, and the movement from Biblical 
to contemporary dialogue and action is 
indicated by the change of spotlights. 

The cast consists of Ron Burke, Mary 
Louise Lamke, Kathy Bauernfeind, Bob 
Mariner, Charlie Deitzel, and Bob Gre- 
gory, with Ray Foley in charge of light- 
ing, Sue Leonard as promptress, and Kathy 
Bauernfeind, make-up. 

The play uses background music to cre- 
ate mood and time changes; George Hilt- 
ner will be organist. This recent innova- 
tion is another characteristic of modern 
theater. Tennessee Williams is one of the 
many contemporary playwrights who uses 
music to advantage. 

Wig and Buckle hopes that the students 
will be a receptive audience for what 
they believe is a thought-provoking dra- 

Choir And Orchestra 
To Give Tour Concert 

The Concert Choir and Chamber Or- 
chestra will perform tonight at 8:30 in 
Engle Hall under the direction of Pierce 
A. Getz. They will present a concert of 
music representative of all major periods 
of choral composition. 

The program will open with works of 
sixteenth and seventeenth century com- 
posers, including Latin motets by Italian 
and Spanish composers, as well as sacred 
and secular music sung in English. 

The next section is devoted entirely to 
a chuch cantata by Johann Sebastian 
Bach, written about 1725 for the Easter 
season. Soloists are Sylvia Bucher, alto; 
Jack Turner, tenor; and Dennis Martin, 

Other outstanding features of the con- 
cert will be the performance of some of 
Brahms' "Liebeslieder Waltzer," a set of 
Negro spirituals, and an African walking 
song, "Flo Me La." 

Following the pattern of the Concert 
Choir's recent tour, Sandra Stetler will be 
featured as soprano soloist. With the ex- 
ception of the Bach Cantata, all orches- 
trations were arranged by Kenneth An- 
derson, tenor. 

Chicago Minister 
Is REW Speaker 

Dr. Samuel L. Gandy will travel from his pastorate in Kenwood- 
Ellis Community Church, Chicago, Illinois, to act as the campus religious 
leader during Religious Emphasis Week, next Monday through Thursday. 
Gandy will help develop the REW theme, "I and Thou," dealing with the 
relationship between man and deity 

He is dean of Lawless Memorial Cha- 
pel and professor of religion at Dillard 
University, New Orleans, Louisiana. Dr. 
Gandy helped found the National Associ- 
ation of College and University Chaplains 
and is a past president of that organiza- 

Committee Plans Events 

A brief rundown of REW events shows 
a faculty tea and Wig and Buckle's mod- 
ern religious drama, "Christ and the Con- 
crete City," scheduled for the opening 
day. Times for these and other activities 
are listed on page 4. 

Tuesday's agenda lists the chapel con- 
vocation with Dr. Gandy, and afternoon 
interviews with him in the college lounge. 
Skeptics' Hour, a question-and-answer ses- 
sion which in the past has commanded 
good attendance, will follow. Evening 
dormitory discussion groups led by facul- 
ty members are also planned for Tues- 

Dr. Gandy will preside Wednesday at 
the second convocation, interviews and an 
informal "speaker's choice" meeting. Holy 
Communion will be served Wednesday 
evening in the College Church. 

REW will close Thursday with a final 
convocation in the morning, a fellowship 
banquet (speaker, the Rev. Richard H. 
Crawford, York) in the evening in the 
dining hall, and a consecration service at 
night. The Rev. Clair L. Wagner, well- 
known personality among EUB youth, 
will speak. 

Banquet Is Innovation 

The Thursday evening fellowship ban- 
quet, planned for 7 p.m., is open to all 
day and resident students and is free of 
charge. Carl Rife will be toastmaster. For 
those not attending the banquet, a cafe- 
teria-style meal (same as banquet menu) 
will be served from 5 to 6 p.m. 

Speaker Active With Youth 

Active in working with youth, Dean 
Gandy is a member of the executive com- 
mittee of the Southern College Personnel 
Association and serves as chairman of the 
Committee on the Religious Needs of Stu- 
dents. As a consultant to the Southern 
Regional Council, he has many opportu- 
nities to advise youth groups and inter- 
collegiate councils. Past campus minis- 
tries have included Fisk University and 
Virginia State College. 

During the summer of 1958 he traveled 
with an interfaith team to the Middle 
East and the Soviet Union as representa- 
tive of the National Conference of Chris- 
tians and Jews. 

In 1958-59 he was appointed special 
Danforth Fellow at the University of Chi- 
cago's Divinity School from which he in 
1952 had received his Ph.D. in philoso-

to the field of human relations and has 
served actively in human relations organ- 
izations both as a member and lecturer. 
Born in South Carolina, he is sensitive to 
the problems of the southern region and 
yields himself to an analysis of the con- 
temporary situation. 

Carl Rife, James Corbett (REW chairman) and Judy Snowberger make final 
arrangements for Religious Emphasis Week, February 26 to March 1. 

Chemisty Department 

Lebanon Valley College is one of sev- 
enty-six institutions chosen on the basis 
of their records of strength in chemical 
education to receive an annual grant of 
$4,000 from the aid to education program 
of E. I. du Pont de Nemours and Com- 

The grant to Valley will include $2,500 
for chemistry education and $1,500 for 
other courses. In the past, Valley has used 
this for such things as the Science-for-a- 
Day program, which helps to create an 
interest in science as a career. No definite 
plans for this grant have yet been made.

How Do We P.ate ? 

There must be something good about Lebanon Valley College. I 
know that this will shock many of you who are constantly stating griev- 
ances about our campus community. 

But, the Middle States Consulting Team who observed our campus 
last week gave favorable reports. As a matter of fact it was made clear 
before the team's appearance on campus that the evaluation was to be of a 
new "project" type, in which renewal of Middle States accreditation was 
to be taken for granted and the visitors were to serve as consultants to the 
college. Their main function was to discuss the appropriateness and feasi- 
bility of our instituting a limited master's degree; offering honors work; the 
testing program and the geographic and cultural services and constituen- 
cies of the college. 

The campus should know that Lebanon Valley is the first Small col- 
lege to be granted this privilege. This project program has been used pre- 
viously on larger campuses such as Princeton. (But it would be very 
serious to the education standards of the United States if colleges such as 
Princeton should not be assumed accredited before such an evaluation.) 

Not only was the school rated high academically, but Otto F. Kaus- 
haar, chairman of the evaluating team, indicated that the human relations 
pattern of Lebanon Valley College was to be commended. 

Those who were involved in any way with the projects are to be con- 
gratulated. This includes the president, the dean, the committee chairmen, 
the faculty and students. The real value of such a program is the self-eval- 
uation of the campus involved in the preparation and the critical reports 
which result. (KLK) 

Academically Speaking 

Sixty-four students are on probation this semester. This number, 
though high, is not record-setting, according to Dean Ehrhart. Neverthe- 
less it represents approximately nine per cent of the student body. 

About 14 per cent of the students failed courses, with math, chemistry 
and freshman English taking the highest toll. Six students were suspended 
at mid-term for academic reasons. This is high, the dean observed, and it 
is somewhat unusual to find it necessary to ask more than two or three 
students to leave at mid-year. However, the close of the term sometimes 
brings as many as 20-25 suspensions. 

Especially after semester exams, we hear dormitory discussions in- 
volving victims and sympathizers of what we see as academic harshness. 
It is rumored that the prof is trying to keep half of the class at D or F in 
order to look tough (i.e., good). Also, this year and last year the cry was 
that since the evaluators were coming soon, professors were cracking down 
so as to make LVC look good. 

It may be true that some professors do grade so that only a chosen 
few make C or better, and for the reasons students give. Such teachers 
perhaps forget that they are dealing with human beings and not with num- 
bers. However, such accusations should not be unduly invoked as a pro- 
jection of blame or a rationalization of student deficiency. It is easier to 
blame the curve or the professor than to examine ourselves and find how 
we can improve. Only if we are convinced that we as students are doing 
our share are we justified in suggesting that the faculty show more interest 
in us as human beings. 

The claim that severity looks favorable for evaluation is, according to 
administrative sources, not the case at all. On the contrary, high failure and 
suspension lists do nothing positive for us. Rather than indicating high 
academic standards, these failures point a finger at the college admissions 
program and question its efficiency in choosing good "college material." 
Hence we can cross out this factor as a cause of low grades. 

Another item may be a more likely cause: over-sized classes. Re- 
marks by students have been made on the subject, to the effect that "I'm 
paying to go to a small school for 'individual attention'; where is it, and 
why do we have such big classes?" Classes of 40 to 100 are common, it is 
true, and certainly these are not conducive to attaining the goals of the 
college as stated in the college catalog. 

The catalog says, "Placing strong emphasis on student-faculty con- 
tact, Lebanon Valley College is proud of the amount of individual atten- 
tion devoted to each student." Now, students with academic difficulties 
definitely have a responsibility to make appointments for the promised 
"individual attention," but they are more inclined to do this if they think 
of faculty members as approachable and benevolent. Those qualities are 
difficult for a professor to attain when a mass of 40 or more sits before 
him in class; it is hard to think of all those bluebooks as anything but 
statistics (even though to students they mean academic life or death), and 
we can hardly blame a professor for greeting us with a mere "Good morn- 
ing (no name)," if he greets us at all. 

Maybe we could reduce the probation and failure lists and keep stu- 
dent morale at a healthy pitch by trying to see what can be done about 
having smaller classes in the future, and living up to those ideals on page 
10 of the catalog. Students and faculty could then meet each other half 
way. Students would be quicker to seek help when they know they need it, 
and professors would be more sensitive to the feelings and problems of 
students. (JMK) 

Letters To The Editor 

Editor of La Vie: 

Although many disrespectful incidents 
regularly occur during our chapel pro- 
grams (audible talking, studying, etc.), I 
find it extremely astonishing, and a bit 
unbelievable, that some upperclassmen 
displayed the fortitude to listen to a radio 
account of NASA's experiment during the 
chapel service on Tuesday morning of 
this week. 

Certainly these college enrollees should 
be invited to reconsider before repeating 
this act in the future. SURPRISED

'Man Meets God' 
Is Buber's Theme 

By Ethel H. Nagle 
I and Thou, a well-known book by 
Martin Buber, has been selected as the 
theme of this year's Religious Emphasis 
Week. In the next few weeks, we will be 
hearing a great deal about the "I and 
Thou" relationship between God and 

The author, a contemporary Jewish the- 
ologian whose works are on a par with 
Tillich and Niehbur in philosophical cir- 
cles, has presented in his book the con- 
cept of God and man as partners in a 
parity covenant. Buber's primary concern, 
it seems, is to further the understanding 
of one's personal relationship with God, 
and the adaptation of such an experience 
carried over into everyday life. 

The fact that Buber has been obviously 
influenced by Kierkegaard may immedi- 
ately provoke the reader's image of him 
as "just another existentialist," but Buber 
takes examples from nature and history, 
giving us many concrete bases to express 
his views. Because of this direct relation- 
ship with God, he is considered a "mystic." 
This, of course, is justified, but the direct- 
ness, in itself, of this experience and the 
almost humanly close connection between 
God and man is simultaneously his great- 
est thought and the most difficult to ex- 

His book must be read — and then 
thought — fully studied. At first glance, 
the paragraphs seem confusing and re- 
dundant. Yet, the reader who distinguish- 
ed two worlds has made a mistake in his 
conclusions. The book may be called a 
sort of study in religious dichotomy, that 
is, it stresses the two-ness, the bi-lateral 
idea of a person and his religious experi- 

God as a Person and God as the Infi- 
nite Power are combined, though para- 
doxically, in Buber's view. His image of 
God has the characteristic of both con- 

In conclusion, the book is definitely im- 
portant, not only to the pre-ministerial 
student, but to every one concerned 
with the basic ideas of theology in the 
Judaeo-Christian tradition. Rather than a 
book, Buber's book should be read as an 
experience — to help further a greater un- 
derstanding of God's highly personal role 
in our everyday life. 

Could Space Travel

The Great Need 

Now that the library is open on Sunday afternoons, what more do the 
students desire? 

During a chapel program last year, a poll was taken to find out what 
improvements the students wanted for our campus. Several suggestions 
were voted on: a student union building; a new auditorium; the blocking 
off of Sheridan Avenue — making it part of our campus, were only a few 
among those voted upon. After this tally — silence. What were the results? 

Every year the need to decide becomes more critical. Again our cam- 
pus becomes a hall of echoes over weekends as many students leave — for 
more exciting places? 

Again we discover the necessity of a great auditorium — a place where 
the artists of the Artist Series can display their talents under the most 
favorable conditions; where The Brothers Four can sing without being 
"echoed" out of the gym. 

We want, we want, we need — this is always the cry. Is this wrong? 
I think not. We do want concrete answers and solutions to these problems. 
If the students do not voice their opinions, the administration cannot tell 
what is on their minds. It is many times through the initiative of the stu- 
dents that our campus life and facilities improve. 

At some colleges there is a forum set up so that students and adminis- 
trators can discuss, intelligently and rationally, the needs and problems, 
gripes and grievances of the campus. If we could discuss openly with 
President Miller and Dean Ehrhart, even with the trustees, these questions, 
I feel that much could be gained. 

If the students really want improvements, please speak up. All ears 
are open. (JKC) ^ 

La Vie Inquires 

Should LVC Attempt 
A 'Grievance Forum' ? 

It has been suggested that students here at Lebanon Valley do not 
have a good way to tell professors and the administration their grievances. 
At some small colleges it is customary to hold a yearly meeting at which 
students can ask the professors any questions about school policies, etc., or 
air grievances. What do the students think of using this idea here? 
Tom Kent: "This would be a very ad- 

vantageous move in furthering the devel- 
opment of an atmosphere of academic 
freedom. Many times the students feel 
that their grievances are not given ade- 
quate discussion and consideration by 
members of the administration." 

Olivia Gluyas: 
"On an organized 
basis this could be- 
come an adequate 
sounding board for 
the students and 

Harrison Wood- 
ruff: "It would be 
a good chance to 
express inner 
Betsy Miller thoughts that we 

would normally be afraid to expound." 

Lowell Brogan: "Since the college tries 
to promote attention for individuals, this 
could be another stepping stone toward 
achieving this objective. Also, this will 
give the student a means of searching 
out the opinions of professors." 

Daniel Shearer, Ray Lichtenwalter, 
and Terry DeWald: "This would be a fine 
oportunity for the students providing that 
the professors do not hold any prejudice 
against students who might ask embar- 
rassing questions, in regard to classroom 
or to department incidents.

La Vie Collegienne, Thursday, February 22, 1962 


Dutch Flier 


The December 18 issue of Sports Illustrated took an editorial position 
condemning the recent Eastern College Athletic Conference ban on its 
players participating in summer basketball leagues on campus playgrounds 
and resort areas. The magazine recognizes and applauds the organization's 
aim to prevent future basketball scandals, but finds this particular remedy 
unworthy. "The ban," says the article, "is an attempt to direct public 
attention from the problems colleges face in their own backyards. It should 
be stricken." 

Sports Illustrated makes three points: 

a. The college officials have no right to tell a student what he may 
not do during his summer vacation, except to insist that he remain an ama- 
teur if he wishes to continue playing for his college. 

b. The recent basketball fixes prove that many of the players who 
took bribes were reached right on their own campuses. 

c. The vast majority of summer jobs serve highly creditable purposes 
for both players and spectators. 

I would tend to support these statements and will go as far as to say 
that the schools share a great part of the guilt involved in the fixes. 

In an article recently published by Look magazine it was pointed out 
that a great many of the ball players were academically unfit to be at a 
college or university, either due to improper training or lack of desire. 
Players who are given an academic "free ride" can not be expected to turn 
down a financial one. 

It was also stated that many of the players had great financial obliga- 
tions that could not be met with the aid offered by the schools. Many had 
families to support and were almost a "sure thing" for a fixer to approach. 
They certainly are not innocent, but is the blame entirely on their 

The method in which the athletes are recruited is often a start for a 
potential point-shaver. Schools offer lavish financial support and rewards 
to a player if he will go there. They try to bid higher than the previous 
offer. Why, then, is it expected that these boys will turn down a gambler's 
offer, which excels anything the school offers him? He has been trained 
to take the best price that comes up. 

You might say that it's a matter of pride and school loyalty. Let's be 
practical. A boy of low intelligence (as is often the case), in financial dif- 
ficulty, and with a background of accepting the most money for his ser- 
vices isn't going to consider the school's "good name." 

I think that before the schools start curtailing their athletes' activities 
they should first take a good look at their own methods and try to remedy 
some of their own procedures. Granted, this has been done to a great ex- 
tent in many colleges, but the move toward "big time" basketball has re- 
sulted in the unscrupulous tactics now employed in so many of this coun- 
try's schools. 

As I said, the boys are not guiltless by any means, but the schools are 
not to be pictured as merely pious institutes of learning with no hand in 
the corruption of college basketball. They have played their part in its cor- 
ruption and now must play their part in its cleansing.

Mr. Clarke bases his argument on the 
discoveries that have already been made 
about space. "As soon as we were able 
to rise above the atmosphere, a new and 
surprising universe was opened up, far 
richer and more complex than had ever 
been suspected from ground observa- 
tions." To go further into space means to 
find still more strange, wonderful, mys- 
terious things. Man needs these things to 
keep from stagnating intellectually. 

Still, these new discoveries will prob- 
ably shake many beliefs now held by reli- 
gions and philosophies. Mr. Clarke feels 
that it is almost certain that man will 
come into contact with races more intelli- 
gent than our own. What then will hap- 
pen to the belief, basic to many religions, 
that "God made Men in His own image?" 

Mr. Clarke feels that the ultimate be- 
lief of man will be a pantheism, the idea 
that God and the universe are one and 
the same, and he is an integral part of the 
universe, but not a special being. 

Man may find it hard to adjust to the 
ideas which he will find when he investi- 
gates space, but to refuse to explore 
space because it may destroy some long- 
held beliefs would be "treason to the 
human spirit." The only choice now is 
to explore space peacefully or to destroy 
ourselves in war. 

Dr. Thurmond Attends 
Regional Band Clinic 

Dr. James M. Thurmond, associate pro- 
fessor of music education, was the guest 
conductor at the Eastern Regional Band- 
masters Clinic held February 9 and 10 at 
the United States Naval School of Music 
in Washington, D. C. 

Dr. Thurmond conducted the reading 
sessions of new band music at the clinic 
which is held annually for high school 
and college bandmasters. 

Dr. Thurmond founded the Naval 
School of Music and was officer-in-charge 
during the nineteen years he was in the 
Navy. Since then he has served as a mu- 
sic instructor in Montgomery County 
Schools and played French horn in the 
Philadelphia Orchestra before joining the 
Lebanon Valley College faculty in 1954. 

A resident of Camp Hill, he received 
his B.A. degree from American Univer- 
sity, an M.A. from Catholic Universtiy 
and a diploma in French horn from Cur- 
tis Institute of Music.

Cagemen Score High 
Defeating Dickinson 

The Lebanon Valley squad went 
at Carlisle Tuesday, February 13, and 
the final horn sounded. 

The first half was played a nearly even 
terms with the Valley holding a 43-37 
edge at the half. Most of the scoring at 
this point had been done by Bill Koch 
(14), Hi Fitzgerald (13), and Tom Knapp 

The second half produced a free scor- 
ing exhibition with the Dutchmen rolling 
up 52 points to Dickinson's 44. During 
the half the Valley added 20 more field 
goals to their first half total of 19 to 
bring the evening's work, to 39 just one 
behind the season high of 40 set in LV's 
92-67 win over Upsala. 

Hi Fitzgerald dropped 29 points 
through the cords for his season high of 
29 and was followed by Tom Knapp with 
22 and Bill Koch with 20. 

Dickinson, despite their losing effort, 
had five men in double figures — Hermann 
(18), Becker (14), James (14), Schantzen- 
bach (12), and Shapiro (15). 

LV Loses To Drexel 
For 7-10 Season 

The Dutchmen of Lebanon Valley tra- 
veled to Philadelphia February 19 to play 
the Dragons of Drexel and were turned 
back to the tune of 86-52 on Monday 

The Dutchmen jumped into an early 
8-2 lead, 4 points apiece by Bill Koch and 
Art Forstater. But, after the score was 
tied at 10 all the Dragons took over and 
were never headed during the remainder 
of the contest. The score at the half was 
Drexel 37 and LV 27. 

After coming back on the floor for the 
second half the Valley twice cut the lead 
to seven points but could come no 
closer. The Dutchmen were held almost 
scoreless for the last 10 minutes of the 
half as Drexel built up an insurmount- 
able margin. 

Ed Heffner led the Dragon attack with 
25 markers on twelve field goals and one 
foul shot. He was followed by King and 
Brown who had 16 and 12 respectively. 

The Valley had three ball players in 
double figures. Hi Fitzgerald led the at- 
tack with 14, followed by Art Forstater 
with 13 and Dale Hains with 10. 

The loss leaves the Dutchmen with a 
7-10 seasonal record and a 6-8 confer- 
ence record.

At The Dickinson Game 
Saturday Night 
(Last Home Game) 

With Big First Half 

The LVC Flying Dutchmen fought 
back from a 21 -point half-time deficit to 
come within nine points of a highly rated 
Albright team, in a game played Satur- 
day, February 17. 

The first half was a rough one for the 
Valley as they had in two members with 
field goals, Tom Knapp with 8 and Art 
Forstater with 3. Albright's Ruttenberg 
matched Knapp's sharpshooting perform- 
ance with eight field goals while his team- 
mates added twelve more plus seven foul 
shots for a 47 point total at half time 
compared to 26 for the Dutchmen. 

The second half was another story. 
Knapp continued to pour the ball through 
the hoop but gained much help from Hi 
Fitzgerald and Art Forstater as the Valley 
slowly chopped away at Albright's lead. 
During the half the Valley outscored the 
Lions 42-30 and had pulled the score up 
to 77-68 at the final buzzer. 

Tom Knapp led the Valley assault with 
26 points on 13 field goals. He was fol- 
lowed by Art Forstater with 15 and Hi 
Fitzgerald with 11. 

Ruttenberg topped Albright with 18 
and was supplemented by Pearsall (13), 
Baustch (12), and Sommerstead (12). 

end Juniata 14-13 

Vance Stouffer came through with a 
heart-stopping 4-3 decision in the last 
match of the evening last Saturday to give 
the Lebanon Valley College "Flying 
Dutchmen" a thrilling 14-13 victory over 

The evening began poorly when Tom 
Kent lost 6-5 in the 123 pound class, but 
Don Kaufman came right back in his 133 
division with a 5-1 win. Mike Gephart 
then dropped his match 8-6. Vince 
Caprio tied it up at 6-6 with a 4-3 deci- 
sion in the 147 pound battle. 

Bob Brill was pinned in the second 
period by J. C. Day, giving Juniata a 5 
point edge with an 11-6 lead, but Jay 
Kreider closed the gap with a 5-1 decision 
over Joe Weaver in the 167 pound class. 

Freshman Joe Rutter kept the "Dutch- 
men" within striking distance as he tied 
Juniata's Bloker in the 177 pound go. 

The stage was set for Stouffer, and he 
came through with flying colors, coming 
from a three point deficit to win 4-3 on 
an escape, a take down and riding timing.

Contemporary Scene 

With Tom J. Holmes 

Liberals of the world unite! The Con- 
servative element of this (republic) (de- 
mocracy) (welfare state) is using our 
methods of satire and humor to ridicule 
the great progress we would some day 
like to make. They have been poking fun 
at us while we run about in circles. They 
have been laughing while we have been 

You see, they have this magazine, a 
''journal of fact and opinion" (in reality a 
digest of comedy and errors). It has the 
seemingly innocent title of National Re- 
view, and is headed by that arch-clown, 
William F. Buckley, Jr. 

Being one who regards the New Fron- 
tier as a divine establishment to save hu- 
manity (probably from itself), I feel it is 
my sacred duty to expose this Review of 
Notes from the Underground (indicative 
of the shelter crowd). 

Here, then, are quotations, liberally 
sprinkled with comment and slowly sim- 
mered over a low fire of dissention. 

* * • * 

From "The Week": on a "March 7 
Madison Square Garden Rally of Young 
Americans for Freedom. . . Students and 
(others) coming ... to hear major ad- 
dresses by Moise Tshombe, Senators Bar- 
ry Goldwater and John Tower. . . Patri- 
otic medleys played by a rip-roaring rally 
band. . ." I would suggest "African Beat," 
"Grand Canyon Suite," "The Yellow Rose 
of Texas," and perhaps several choruses 
of "Just Before the Battle, Mother." 

Among those receiving awards (in per- 
son) will be Herbert Hoover, who I rather 
suspect is being honored for doing noth- 
ing but celebrating a quiet birthday every 
year. Also to be a recipient is Strom 
Thurmond, South Carolina's answer to 
"Who Do You Trust?" 

* » * 

Embellishing page 121 (February 27 
issue) is "The Liberal Bookshelf" "com- 
piled by the Conservative Club of the 
University of Miami." Among the selec- 
tions is The Best Defense Against Com- 
munism is the Welfare State, by Prof. 
Arthur Schmaltzinger, Jr., persuasively ar- 
guing that the best defense against murder 
is suicide." This idea obviously came from 
one of the fun-in-the-sun undergrads who 

had to pay income tax on his allowance. 

* * * 

But the best of all is — that's right, the 
classified ad section. Here we learn that 
various of the editors of NR are available 
for limited speaking engagements. Con- 
servative all the way, eh? 

Also, an "outspoken young conservative 
seeks position in the Washington, D. C, 
area. Aggressive, articulate and imagin- 
ative with writing ability." Sounds sort of 
like W.F.B., Jr. Could it be he's planning 
to defect? 

A "conservative art studio" is seeking 
an artist, perhaps to do some American 
Primitives, and "anyone interested in 
forming a Conservative Repertoire Thea- 
ter" should write NR. I woud expect soon 
to see a revision of a 13th Century Mir- 
acle Play. 

Then there is the one which offers 
ballpoint pens in "four different samples," 
probably none of which are pink. 

You might also be inclined to buy "I 
Miss Ike" bumper stickers (to cover those 
which say "Nixon and Lodge") or to pur- 
chase "Goldwater lapel tabs" which I be- 
lieve go well with blue serge, double- 
breasted suits. 

Then there is the notice that the "Na- 
tional Committee to Defend Conserva- 
tive Teachers has been disbanded." Oh 
well, there's always old age pension. How 
about "the Delaware Defenders of the 
Republic . . . will mail free their action 
leaflet. . ." Makes you wonder just who's 
going to defend Delaware. 

Finally nestled between "Some day a 
gun could save your life" and "GUNS- 
AMMUNITION" is the imperative, 
"Conservatives! Help block leftist meas- 
ures. . ." 

* * * 

Ah, well, c'est la vie. Maybe the whole 
thing will soon blow over — or up? 

* * * 

Good day!

Society To Give Test 
On Campus May 16 

Lebanon Valley College will serve on 
May 16 as a testing center for preliminary 
examinations for the Society of Actu- 

All mathematics and business majors 
interested in entering the life insurance 
field upon graduation should send in ap- 
plications to take this test as soon as pos- 
sible. Applications are available at the 
math department office. 

Since 1958-59 the LVC math depart- 
ment has been developing a program to 
train beginning actuarial candidates for 
the life insurance industry. 

Dr. Barnard Bissinger, head of the de- 
partment, pointed out that in the planning 
of this program, Mr. Conrad Siegel, 
F.S.A., has been a guiding consultant 
who, in addition to helping formulate the 
curriculum, provides a cash prize award 
each year to the winner of a competitive 
examination set by him and the depart- 
ment of mathematics. 

Students enrolled in this program take 
regular college courses dealing with ele- 
mentary statistical analysis (math 12), 
probability theory (math 31), and mathe- 
matical statistics (math 37) . Each year a 
special seminar is given that rotates in 
sequence from life insurance mathemat- 
ics to finite differences and finally life 
contingencies. In both the courses and 
seminars, the texts recommended by the 
Society of Actuaries are used and the 
actuarial examinations are given on the 
campus in November and May. 

Anthology Of Poetry 
Seeks Student Work 

The American College Poetry Society 
has announced that its fifth semesterly 
anthology of outstanding college poetry is 
now being compiled for publication in 
May. Students aspiring to have their work 
published are invited to contribute. 

Contributions must be the original 
work of the student (who shall retain lit- 
erary rights to the material, submitted to 
Richard Briand, executive secretary, care 
of the Society, Box 24083, Los Angeles 
24, California, with the entrant's name, 
address, and school on each page. 

Poems may reflect any subject but may 
not exceed 48 lines, and an individual 
may submit no more than five poems. 
Entries not accepted for publication will 
be returned if accompanied by a self- 
addressed, stamped envelope. 

This year the Society will offer recog- 
nition awards of $5 each to five outstand- 
ing college poets. The poems cannot be 
otherwise acknowledged, nor can the So- 
ciety compensate students for work pub- 

All entries must be postmarked not 
later than Thursday, April 12. Decisions 
of the judges are final.

Dr. Jean Love Plans 
Travel, Study Abroad 

Dr. Jean O. Love, chairman of the department of psychology, is 
spending the semester in Europe, studying at Oxford University and gath- 
ering evidence concerning a theory she has entertained for some time. 
Dr. Love is interested in "the creative 

artist, the processes by which he works, 
and the relation of an artist's style to the 
psychological normality or abnormality 
of his personality." Her theory is that 
there is often a correlation between an 
artist's personality and his product. 

Will Study Woolf Manuscripts 

Dr. Love has chosen the writings of the 
late British authoress Virginia Woolf for 
the investigation of her hypothesis. She 
believes there is a definite relationship 
between Mrs. Woolfs personality disor- 
ders and her style of writing. 

Mrs. Woolf, author of To The Light- 
house, Mrs. Dalloway and approximately 
ten other works, had much to say about 
how she wrote and why. She stated, for 
one thing, that she wrote spontaneously, 
from a "stream of consciousness." 

Dr. Love finds indication, however, 
through examination of manuscripts avail- 
able in this country at the New York 
Public Library, that Mrs. Woolf was not 
always spontaneous; in fact, her work was 
often quite labored. Sentence structure 
and wording were carefully chosen, and 
lines and phrases were frequently crossed 
out and stringently revised. Dr. Love says 
that her studies in New York uphold her 
thesis regarding Mrs. Woolf. 

The fabled relationship of genius to 
abnormality is a fiction according to re- 
search statistics. But there are abundant 

Bechtell Reads Paper 
Before Math Society 

Homer Bechtell, assistant professor of 
mathematics at Lebanon Valley College, 
will read a paper on "Finite Groups 
Whose Generators are Subgroup Generat- 
ors (A Preliminary Report)," before the 
American Mathematical Societly in New 
York on February 22. 

Bechtell came to LVC in Septem- 
ber, 1961, from Grove City College 
where he held a similar position. 

He obtained his master's degree 
from the University of Wisconsin, where 
he is currently a candidate for the 
Ph.D. degree. He will serve as an assist- 
ant professor of mathematics at Wiscon- 
sin during the summer school of 1962. 

Answer To Puzzle 

A correct answer to the puzzle publish- 
ed in the last issue of La Vie has been 
received from Robert Orndorf. 

His answer was that a man could crawl 
under a wire which circled the earth if 
the wire is 100 feet longer than the cir- 
cumference of the earth. He solved the 
problem by using the relationship C=2 
pi r for the circumference of the circle. 
Since the height of the wire above the 
earth will be equal to the difference in 
radii of the two circles, he said that this 
difference in radii will be equal to the 
difference in the circumferences divided 
by 2 pi. Solving this, using the differ- 
ence in circumference of 100 feet, he ob- 
tained the answer of 15.92 feet. It seems 
safe to assume that a man will be able to 
crawl under the wire.

severe instabilities. Van Gogh, William

ther investigate this relationship.

Dr. B. A. Richards 
Wins Research Bid 

Dr. Benjamin Richards, assistant professor of philosophy, will do 
research next year at Yale University under the sponsorship of the Rocke- 
feller Foundation. Dr. Richards is one of several scholars chosen from 
nationwide applicants to receive a research grant from the Foundation. 
His topic is the study of the principles underlying those U. S. Supreme 
Court cases from 1919 to the present which deal with freedoms protected 
by the First Amendment. 

The project will involve the considera- 
tion of several hundred cases, and will 
take Dr. Richards about a year. Six 
months will be spent in gathering informa- 
tion, from which he will write a book in 
the remaining half year. Dr. Richards 
chose his own topic of study after becom- 
ing interested in the question "What is a 
right?" while writing his doctoral disserta- 
tion on traditional individual rights, espe- 
cially as conceived by philosopher John 

Has Four-Fold Purpose 

"Up to the present time," says Dr. 
Richards, "I have found no analysis of 
this concept of the meaning of 'a right' to 
be satisfactory to me. In my study I 
want to state why, and elucidate my con- 
cept of 'a right,' in particular the right to 
freedom of speech, press, assembly and 
religion." This he stated as a main pur- 
pose in undertaking the project. 

Second, he will trace the underlying 
principles to their sources in writings of 
philosophers like Locke, and Founding 
Fathers such as Samuel and John Adams, 
Paine and Jefferson. Writings of thinkers 
outside the strictly traditional American 
and British influence will be considered, 
for philosophers of other nations have in- 
fluenced a number of Court cases. The 
paper thus has a historical purpose as well 
as philosophical and political ones. 

Dr. Richards will also look into philoso- 
phical foundations of rights principles as 
found in thinkers having no influence on 
the cases, but who nevertheless do provide 
justification for some of the decisions. 

Last, Dr. Richards purports to include 
an original systematic formulation of his 
own philosophical position on the justifi- 
cation of these First Amendment liberties. 
After consulting their traditional views, he 
will formulate and offer his own defini- 
tion of "a right." 

Alumnus Establishes 
Religion Lectureship 

Bishop Emeritus John Balmer Showers 
of the Evangelical United Brethren 
Church has presented his alma mater, 
Lebanon Valley College, with a substan- 
tial endowment for the purpose of estab- 
lishing an annual lectureship in the vari- 
ous fields of religion and Biblical scholar- 

Under stipulations of the endowment, 
the lectures shall be prepared and deliver- 
ed by lecturers of distinguished scholar- 
ship and of recognized leadership in the 
area of the subject matter of the lectures. 
They may be selected from among per- 
sons in the United States, Canada, or else- 
where and their doctrinal position shall 
be in accord with that of the Evangelical 
United Brethren Church. Income from 
the endowment will provide at least three 
lectures by the selected lecturer in each 

Dr. Frederic K. Miller, president of 
LVC, announced that the program to be 
established by the endowment in the fall 
°f 1962 shall commemorate the service 
of Bishop Showers in the EUB Church, 
Particularly during his years in the epis- 
copate but also during his tenure as a 
Professor at Bonebrake Theological Semi- 
nary (now United Theological Seminary) 
a nd as publishing agent of the printing 
establishment of the Church of the Uni- 
te d Brethren in Christ at Dayton. 

The Rockefeller Foundation 

The Foundation gives grants to quali- 
fied scholars interested in research which 
has as its objective the application of de- 
mocratic tradition to modern government. 
The Foundation requires no progress re- 
ports or statement of results from partici- 
pating individuals. The allottment is given 
solely for the sake of augmenting U. S. 
scholarship and there are no strings at- 
tached. Dr. Richards will publish his 
book at his own initiative, independent 
of the Foundation. 

He plans to return to LVC in Septem- 
ber of 1964. 

Dr. Richards joined the LVC faculty in 
the fall of 1960, coming to Annville from 
a similar post at Upsala College. He has 
served as an instructor at Southern Con- 
necticut State College, at Quinnipiac Col- 
lege, and at New Haven College. He was 
a social worker with the New Haven De- 
partment of Welfare. From '42 to '45 he 
was a bombardier with the US Air Force. 

Dr. Richards is a graduate of Wesleyan 
University, with an M. A. degree in politi- 
cal science and a Ph.D. in philosophy 
from Yale University. He is a member 
of Phi Beta Kappa, American Philosophi- 
cal Association and the American Aca- 
demy of Political and Social Science. 

He is married to the former Mary Ann 
Lombard of Hamden, Connecticut. They 
have one son, Clifford. 

Accounting Trainees 
Complete Internships 

Four seniors, Don Bacastow, Chuck 
Seidel, Ed Rogers and Barry Light, re- 
cently completed internships with Price, 
Waterhouse and Co., a national firm of 
CPA's which audit financial statements 
such as annual reports for various com- 
panies around the world. 

After a two-day training period at 
Price, Waterhouse's New York office, 
Chuck reported to a Netherland Antilles 
mutual fund for four weeks of general 
audit work and annual report preparation 
while Don did general auditing for three 
weeks at IBM. Chuck was also assigned to 
work for a textile manufacturing firm in 
Milford, Massachusetts. Don then worked 
for the Merrit Chapman Scott Corpora- 
tion, a large construction company which 
is now engaged in building the huge Bay- 
bridge Tunnel in Bainbridge, Virginia. 

Following a similar program in Price, 
Waterhouse's Chicago office, Ed and Bar- 
ry were assigned special auditing jobs for 
two weeks at J. I. Case, a manufacturer 
of farm equipment in Racine, Wisconsin. 
Then Barry did general auditing for two 
weeks at National Homes, a manufactur- 
er of prefabricated houses in Lafayette, 
Indiana, while Ed worked for one and 
a half weeks in Chicago at International 
Packers and a week at Western Union. 

The interns consider this program "an 
invaluable accounting experience under 
excellent supervision." Since they are ec- 
onomics and business administration 
majors with an emphasis on accounting, 
they believe that this will help them in 
deciding which field of accounting to en- 
ter. (They feel that this program is also 
helping improve the reputation of Leba- 
non Valley College.) 

Five Seniors Attain 
Phi Alpha Epsilon 

Five members of the class of 1962 have recently been elected by the 
faculty and administration into Phi Alpha Epsilon, the scholastic honor 
society of Lebanon Valley College 

These seniors are Donna Rae Bressler, 
an English major; Constance Myers 
Brown, majoring in elementary education; 
George J. Hiltner III, majoring in Greek; 
Mary Louise Lamke, an English major 
and Carl B. Rife, a philosophy student. 

Requirements for membership are a 
cumulative quality point average of 3.300 
or above through seven semesters of work, 
of which five semesters must be taken on 
the LV campus. 

These students will be received into 

membership at a special chapel program 
Tuesday, March 30. That evening they 
will be honored by the faculty at a ban- 
quet at the Lebanon Treadway Inn. 

Phi Alpha Epsilon events are planned 
by the society's executive council, consist- 
ing of the following faculty and admini- 
stration: Dr. Jacob Rhodes, president; Dr. 
Carl Ehrhart, vice-president; Mr. Ralph 
Shay, secretary-treasurer; Dr. Anna Faber,

Monologist Gives 
'Series' Lecture 

By Betsy Miller 

Emily Kimbrough, the famed monologist, presented a talk entitled 
"Listen While You Look" in Engle Hall, Monday night. 

Her talk was a strong plea for more and better learning of foreign 
languages, particularly the learning of the spoken language. 

It is not the sights of a foreign country 
that she remembers so well, but rather 
the sounds of a place that recall it most 
vividly. Many people, depending on 
sights for impressions of a place, deprive 
themselves of much of the best that they 
could experience. Extending this, she 
feels that an over emphasis on sight is 
depriving many Americans of the best 
method of learning foreign languages. 

Expressing the idea that we must be 
concerned with the sound of speech, she 
said that reading the literature or scientific 
material of a foreign country is not 
enough. Flexibility of tongue and sharp- 
ness of ear must be developed before one 
can say that he has really learned a 
foreign language. 

She cited examples of Americans who 
have gone to Europe with great facility in 
reading or writing a foreign language and 
have found themselves unable to com- 
municate with the people. It is easier 
for a small child with no concept of 
grammar to pick up the language through 
hearing it spoken than for an adult to 
learn to speak by learning all the rules. 

Today more than ever, it is vital for 
Americans to learn more than one lan- 
guage. Many Americans go overseas be- 
cause of their jobs, or as students, study- 
ing in a foreign university. No good im- 
pression is made by people who cannot 
speak the language of the country they 
are visiting and who do not even attempt 
to learn the language. In many countries 
of the world today, the people from the 
Soviet Union make a much better impres- 
sion on the people of a country than 
Americans do, because the Soviet person 


but they will appreciate the attempt to 
learn the language. 

It was Miss Kimbrough's advice, during 
an interview after the lecture that college 
students should not specialize to any great 
extent during their college career, but 
should try to get courses from every field. 
Particularly they should try to get a very 
good knowledge of at least one foreign 
language, since this could be useful to 
them in further study or in their work 

Music Majors To See 
'Marriage Of Figaro' 

Over fifty of Lebanon Valley's music 
majors plan to attend a performance of 
nel are required to learn the language of . Mozart's "The Marriage of Figaro" at the 

a country to which they are assigned. 

Miss Kimbrough concluded by saying 
that it is far better to stumble through a 
foreign language than not to attempt to 
speak it until it is learned perfectly. 
The people of the country may laugh at

Is Stuntman, Clown 

Lebanon Valley has its share of clowns, 
but one of them is a professional. When 
not involved with his mathematics as be- 
fitting a pre-engineering major, George 
Hollich doffs his student garb, dons his 
greasepaint and hits the sawdust trail. 

Freshman George carries on the family 
tradition by joining his mother and father 
and their motor scooter in a professional 
clown act. His father has been in show 
business for 25 years, while George is a 
relative newcomer, having only 12 years 
experience begun at the age of six. 

Their act, billed as the "Scooter 
Klowns" consists of an original routine 
involving the use of a motor scooter. A 
German Hohner accordion, a musical 
feature unique to the act, provides ac- 
companiment to the performance. Other 
parts of the act include daredevil stunts 
such as riding through a wall of fire, over 
a human ramp (his father's chest) and 
juggling and magic tricks. 

While many of us loafed away our 
Christmas vacation, George was clowning 
away his, performing at over twenty chil- 
dren's parties in the guise of a hobo. 

George has considered continuing pro- 
fessionally, subordinating his "hobby," 
however, to a career in engineering.

The Filibuster 

Right Or Restriction? 

U. S. Senator Joseph S. Clark, who will visit our campus March 24 
during Social Science Day, is described by the March Atlantic magazine 
as "one of the most forthright and vigorous liberals in the Senate." He 
is a former mayor of Philadelphia and the first Democrat in 67 years to 
hold that office. Before that he was city controller and a member of the 
muckraking "Committee of Seventy" which routed Philadelphia corrup- 

Now Senator Clark is trying to drum up support for what he sees as 
another reform campaign, that of revising Senate regulations, specifically 
Rule XXII, which now allows unlimited debate (filibustering) in the Senate 
unless two-thirds of voting and present members vote to discontinue the 
procedure. Clark would like to see a measure passed limiting debate by 
a three-fifths rather than a two-thirds vote, making it impossible for a 
minority (one-third plus one) of Senators to prevent a bill from ever 
coming to a vote. 

The right of filibuster was provided in order to make legislation diffi- 
cult to pass. It is a check which the early Senate instituted to protect 
the people from the exercise of too much power by government. At that 
time Americans were convinced that power corrupts, and government is 
best which governs least. The right of filibuster, and the large vote needed 
to stop such debate, does recognize the possibility that the minority may 
sometimes be wiser than the majority. 

Says Rule XXII Is Obsolete 

Clark feels, however, according to his article in Atlantic, "The Hesi- 
tant Senate," that we no longer need to fear misuse of power by our repre- 
sentative government. He says, "In a day when governmental action, if 
needed at all, could afford to be slow, when the memory of the "tyrant" 
George III was fresh in men's minds, this original conception, favoring 
inaction, made good sense. Does it still do so? I think not." The fili- 
buster is rarely used because of adverse public opinion toward Senators 
who invoke the right. But it has been used by the conservative bloc 
when they feel strongly about certain issues like civil rights and foreign 
policy. Here the practice has hindered policy-making concerning trade 
agreements, disarmament, strengthening the UN Charter, etc. Another 
measure usually blocked by the minority is the proposed repeal of the 
Conally Amendment to the ratification of our adherence to the World 

Clark says some conservatives are suspicious of anything interna- 
tionally oriented. They feel the U. S., in cooperating with such programs, 
yields some of its national sovereignty. "One can predict ... the recourse 
to the flag, to patriotism, to the pocketbook, to the deeply felt distrust of 
'foreigners'," says Clark. Democrats and a few Republicans in the Senate 
believe that internationalism and cooperation among nations is essential 
to world peace and friendship, and they blame Rule XXII for the present 
provincialism of certain areas of our foreign policy. The minority, they 
feel, resists change in a changing world. 

Conservatives Oppose Changing Rule 

To modify Rule XXII takes a two-thirds vote of the Senate. This 
means that 67 Senators must vote for the change, and Clark can count 
on only 61 at the most. The other 39 are anti-Kennedy Democrats and 
Dirksen-Goldwater followers, who are against changing the rule. 

Our speaker of March 24 has nevertheless sponsored the proposed 
changes, and his measure is presently in the Committee on Rules and Ad- 
ministration. Perhaps by the time of his visit here there will be new 
developments on the issue. Students may want to question Senator Clark 
on this important matter of just how extensive the rights and power of the 
minority will be in the face of our principle of majority rule. (JMK) 

REW Review 

Indeed the 1962 Religious Emphasis Week Committee did "focus 
attention on an individual's (I) relationship with God (Thou)." In my 
estimation this was the most inspirational week of its kind since I've been 
at Lebanon Valley. 

I feel I am representing the student body and faculty when I express 
my thanks and congratulations to the executive committee and general 
committees for a well-executed service to the school. 

This campus does not realize what planning goes into an event such 
as this. While many of you are sitting back in your rooms complaining 
that there is nothing to do, some students are busy. "Bishop" Jim Cor- 
bett, chairman of the committee, has had weekly meetings with his groups 
since October. Selecting a theme and a speaker were only two of the 
major jobs of this organization. They had every minute of Dr. Gandy's 
day, as well as the students "leisure" time planned. 

They are to be commended on their choice of Dr. Samuel Lucius 
Gandy as the 1962 REW speaker. His dynamic personality made us all 
wake up and take an active interest — even the back row in chapel was 
"on good behavior!" 

The all-campus Holy Communion service and the modifying of the 
closing banquet to include the entire student body, I feel, should become 
integral parts of the future Religious Emphasis Weeks. 

Your reaction to this REW will appear in the next issue of La Vie 
when the results of the poll taken by the committee will be printed. (KLK) 


Contemporary Scene 

With Tom J. Holmes 

In the true spirit of progress, the New 
Frontier has come through again. It is 
not enough that the United States now 
has the power and resources to destroy 
civilization several times over. Mr. Ken- 
nedy seems to think we can find a better 
way to accomplish total devestation. So 
nuclear testing is to be resumed because 
'without tests — to experiment and verify 
— progress is limited." For some reason I 
have always thought that any progress to- 
ward annihilation of humanity should be 

As of November, 1961, nuclear weapons 
stockpiled in this country had a combined 
potential of 35,000 megatons. Since a 
1,000 megaton bomb could incinerate six 
western states, (and such a bomb is tech- 
nically feasible), it can easily be seen just 
how advanced we are. 

Testing, instead of experimentation and 
verification, has taken on the appearance 
of status and threats. 

In his announcement of the resumption 
of nuclear testing, the President was con- 
siderate enough to point out that "we in- 
tend to rule out any problem of fallout in 
the immediate area of testing." That's 
nice, but there is, to date, no testing plan- 
ned for Lebanon County which is my "im- 
mediate area." 

But what about this problem of fall- 
out? In 1958 the U. S. Atomic Energy 
Commission released a document titled 
"The Biological Hazard to Man of Car- 
bon 14 from Nuclear Weapons," in which 
it declared that damage to mankind from 
weapons tested up to that time would 
produce "100,000 cases of gross physical 
and mental defects and over a million 
cases of miscarriage, still-birth and infant 
and childhood death." 

You say you're planning to have chil- 
dren? I wish you luck. 

It is encouraging to note that Mr. Ken- 
nedy finds it "deeply regrettable that any 
radioactive material must be added to the 
atmosphere — that even one additional in- 
dividual's health may be risked in the fore- 
seeable future." It is also deeply regret- 
table that that individual might be you. 

I have departed from the usual levity of 
this column because there is no humor to 
be found in nuclear testing, especially 
when there is no rational purpose to such 
testing. The question is no longer 
whether man can survive nature but 
whether man can survive himself. God 
grant that he can. 

Sometime this week-end, when you have 
nothing else to do, make a list of ten peo- 
ple you love. Then cross off one name. 
You see, according to one scientist, only 
90 per cent of U. S. citizens would survive 
an H-bomb war. That means one out of 
every ten must die. 

Good day! 

Administration To Hold 
Question-Answer Meeting 

Upon invitation of Faculty-Student 
Council and as a result of suggestions 
made in La Vie Inquires, President Miller 
has expressed his willingness to hold a 
"Meet the Administration" question and 
answer session sometime this semester. 
Watch La Vie for notice of the date of 
this meeting. The president pointed out 
that in the first years of his administration 
he went from dormitory to dormitory, an- 
swering students' inquiries concerning 
campus affairs. Finding he was answer- 
ing the same questions, sessions were sub- 
sequently held in Engle Hall. A decline 
in demand for the meetings occurred, so 
they were discontinued, but President 
Miller stated that he always enjoyed these 
sessions, thought them worthwhole, and 
is looking forward to beginning them

Use Not Abuse 

If student government at LVC is to be of the students, by the students 
and for the students, RWSGA and the Men's Senate realize the necessity 
and value of polling students opinions of their respective systems of rules 
and rule enforcement. Therefore, next week these governing bodies will 
distribute mimeographed questionnaires to all resident students. 

Here, then, is the students' "golden opportunity" to express personal 
suggestions and reflections about their student governments. It is hoped, 
however, that these questionnaires will be used and not abused, that stu- 
dents will conscientiously answer the questions, and that answers will 
reflect sincere ideas aimed at improving not disproving student govern- 

Answering the questionnaire is certainly not compulsory. For those 
of you who intend to utilize this opportunity we would suggest this: Take 
time to make a serious evaluation and constructive criticism of your 
respective governing body so that the Senate and RWSGA can give care- 
ful consideration to your suggestions. (JEK)

What Are Opinions 
Of REW Program? 

By Betsy Miller 

Religious Emphasis Week is often greeted by groans about two ex- 
tra chapels and extra required chapels. The only thing that seems to be 
appreciated is the lack of tests during this period. The attitude seems to 
be that what is required will be done, but what is optional will be ignored 
if at all possible. Response this year to the chapel that was not required 
was better than response last year; does this indicate an increasing in- 
terest in REW? Students were asked what they thought of this year's 
REW program and what they thought of past REW programs if they 
could compare. 

Betsy Miller 

Carol Duncan: "I 

thought the pro- 
grams that were 
scheduled and the 
speaker were excel- 
lent, although 
campus participa- 
tion could have 
been better. I prof- 
ited from the week 
personally. The 
communion service 

was the highlight for me." 

Nan Bintliff: "I thought it was very 
meaningful. It's nice to have a speaker 
for a change. It would have been even 
nicer if the profs had followed their agree- 
ment on tests this week." 

Ann Grove: "I think the dorm discus- 
sions with the profs are worthwhile; it's a 
good chance to discuss problems that 
arise from time to time. Also I liked 
this year's speaker, Dr. Gandy. He 
seemed to have a lot of pep and good 

Merrill Hassinger: "I thought this year's 
topic, I and Thou, was a little hard to 
understand, especially at first, but it was 
a very worthwhile topic if you were will- 
ing to spend a little time thinking about 
it. However many people get the wrong 
idea from REW; religion should not be 
something that is emphasized one week, it 
should be emphasized all year. 

Sue Leonard: "I liked the idea of the 
REW banquet and think this should be 
continued. I thought the entire week was 
a well-organized success." 

Lea Stephanis: "Before this year I was 
ready to question the value of REW or, 
for that matter, any chapel program. I 
thought this year's REW speaker was the 
best one we've had in the four years that 
I've been here. The only thing I've got- 
ten out of REW in the past has come 
from dorm discussions, but this year the 
speaker made the major contribution. At 
the Speaker's Choice Dr. Gandy's discus- 
sion on the racial problem in America 
pointed out how we in the North have no 
basis for our complacency on this vital 

Dick London: "I think it helped to draw 
the kids a bit closer to each other; this I 
witnessed on first floor of Keister, and I 
would suppose that it had the same effect 
elsewhere. One of the biggest assets was 
Dr. Gandy, to my mind a very great 

Ethel Nagle: "I felt that REW was a 
stimulating experience. I'm sure many 
other students were also impressed by our 
speaker and by the program in general. 
The purpose of making our apathetic stu- 
dents think about the spiritual side of life 
was certainly acheived."

La Vie Collegienne, Thursday, March 8, 1962 


By Dave Grove and Curt Miller 

It scarcely needs to be mentioned that the music department of 
Lebanon Valley College presents throughout the year a series of musical 
events of wide interest, and often of very high quality. One thing that 
we feel is lacking in regard to these events is an objective consideration 
of the aesthetic values involved in them. 

Whether such a consideration needs to be justified or not is another 
question, but we shall attempt to make some such justification, if only 
to set the tenor of this column. 

First of all, those participating in these concerts (and this applies to 
the students as much as the faculty, if not more so) will be exposed to ob- 
jective analysis of any performance they give in their future careers. This 
analysis will entail criticisms as well as compliments, and to expose stu- 
dents to only the latter during their college career is to rob them of some 
psychological preparation which they will probably need in order to ac- 
cept criticism gracefully later, when it really matters. 

Secondly, it seems to us that a column of this sort may help to 
arouse greater student interest in these events. While faculty recitals are 
usually well attended, it is largely by people from off campus. It must be 
rather discouraging sometimes to the poor freshman or sophomore partici- 
pating in a "Campus Recital" to realize that the people in the audience 
are there only because it is required of them. Music loses much of its 
meaning and interest if it is only listened to and not thought about. We 
hope that the opinions we present here will stimulate some thought. 

We do not pretend to be experts. Far from it! We are only inter- 
ested amateurs, and the opinions expressed here will reflect this fact. But 
if the opinions presented here cause a response, whether favorable or not, 
from persons who otherwise would have thought little about what they 
heard, then this column will be fulfilling its role. 

That a performance is given is justification enough for forming 
opinions about it. It is our purpose then, to incite others to form opinions 
of their own. 

Since the last publication of this paper, two musical events of great 
interest and representing an extraordinary variety of composers have been 
presented, the first being Miss Pickwell's recital, and the Concert Choir's 
campus concert. 

Pickwell Concert Shows 
'Bewildering, Exciting Proficiency' 

It has rarely been our pleasure to hear 
a more ambitious offering from the faculty 
than Miss Pickwell's. Her concert rep- 
resented a wide range of composers and 
styles, as well as a bewildering and excit- 
ing display of technical proficiency. 

Three short sonatas (E Major, L. 23; 
G Major, L. 387; A Major, L. 395) by 
Alessandro Scarlatti opened the program. 
These sonatas are unpretentious in style 
and content, and modest in scope. They 
provided a very pleasant introduction to 
the recital due to the facility and sym- 
pathy of their performance. The Partita 
in Bflat Major of Bach was technically 
well executed but seemed to lack in places 
that spark of expression necessary for any 
truly artistic performance. 

The entire second section of the pro- 
gram consisted of the Symphonic Etudes 
of Robert Schumann. This is one of the 
highly ambitious selections to which we 
referred earlier, a piece calling for an 
extraordinary degree of technical disci- 
pline as well as a strong emotional re- 
sponse on the part of the performer. In 
the faster passages this response seemed 
to be subordinated to the problem of 
meeting the technical exigencies of the 
music. The slower sections, however, 
presenting fewer technical difficulties, per- 
mitted the performer to exhibit the great 
artistic empathy of which she is capable. 
Without such empathy a performance of 
any music is inclined to be lifeless, but 
the performance of the music of as ro- 
mantic a composer as Schumann is 
destined to be so. On the whole the 
etudes were interesting and often highly 

The Improvisations, Op. 20 (on Hun- 
garian Peasant Songs), of Bela Bartok fol- 
lowed the intermission. These pieces are 
hard to bring off well since they represent 
a rather thorough blending of Bartok's 
"modernistic" tendencies with his char- 
acteristic and often romantically expressed 
love of the Hungarian people. Whether 
there were any wrong notes played in 
them or not (who can really say?), the 
tone clusters and dissonances were woven 
into a fabric whose pattern was clear and 
often pleasing to the attentive listener, and 
this through no small effort on the part 
of the performer. 

The fourth (and last) part of the pro- 
gram consisted of three of the pieces for 
piano solo by Franz Liszt, two of rela- 
tively minor proportions (Au Bord d'un 
Source, and the rather well known Sonetto 

123 del Petrarca), and the well known 
but less widely performed Mephisto Waltz. 
In the first two of these offerings Miss 
Pickwell seemed truly to have found her 
medium. She played them with an in- 
sight and communicativeness that did full 
justice to these very pleasing works. The 
Mephisto Waltz, considered by some peo- 
ple one of the hardest pieces of music for 
piano solo, received a performance which 
admits of varied comments. First of all 
it must be said that Miss Pickwell played 
the Waltz at a tempo so fast that it de- 
tracted noticeably from the beauty of the 
piece. In the opening section we had 
time to notice little else except the speed 
of the performance. The slower sections, 
like the analagous portions of the Schu- 
mann, were highly expressive and effec- 
tive. At one or two points, we feel 
(guided in this opinion by the performance 
of this work by other artists), Miss Pick- 
well found herself having some difficulty 
remaining within the bounds of the origi- 
nal score. This difficulty was no doubt pre- 
cipitated by the speed of the performance. 
That she survived these crises is in itself 
an indication of her maturity as a per- 
former and artist. In any event, the 
Mephisto Waltz provided both the tech- 
nical and emotional acme of a highly en- 
joyable and rewarding evening of music. 
Choir Concert Is Of 'Unusually 

High Caliber' 
The Concert Choir's Campus Concert, 
the second of the two aforementioned 
events, covered an even wider range of 
styles and musical periods. 

The first section of the concert con- 
sisted of six Late Renaissance and Early 
Baroque numbers, varying in type from 
the sacred O Quam Gloriosam of T. L. de 
Victoria to the secular Matona, Lovely 
Maiden of Lassus. The choir showed it- 
self quite capable of handling these pieces, 
sections of which were very highly con- 
trapuntal. Although the choir sounded 
rather stringy in their first offering 
(Gabrieli's Jubilate Deo), by the end of 
the first section they sounded well-knit 
and fairly well balanced. 

The second section was J. S. Bach's 
Cantata No. 67, Hold in Affection Jesus 
Christ. The choir was accompanied by 
a chamber orchestra, of which orchestra 
several things can be said. We felt that 
even the members of the orchestra must 
face the fact that aside from the definite 
lack of technical exactitude with which 
the music was performed, their failure to 
sufficiently consider the rudiments of 

Engaged in a post-lecture discussion are Mr. Fehr, Miss Kimbrough, and 
George Hiltner. Carnegie Lounge was the scene of the discussion Monday 
evening which was open to all students and faculty.

proper tuning noticeably detracted from 
the overall effect of the work. (Could this 
apparent neglect be attributed to the uni-

compelled to say, however, that the bur- 
den of any lack of effectiveness noticed 
in this work can be placed on several 
shoulders: the choir seemed lackluster and 
almost uninterested in the music, and a 
certain intrinsic passivity of the work it- 
self (Bach wrote much better cantatas) 
could not help being noticed. We under- 
stand that this was not one of the choir's 
best performances of the cantata. (Let's

or received at Lebanon Valley for her

Freshman class secretary, Delphian

of music. 

Lecturer's Biography 

Emily Kimbrough, the radio commenta- 
tor, editor, author, screen writer and lec- 
turer who appeared in the Artists Series 
Monday, firmly believes that the chances 
of success in any work are in direct 
ratio to the fun there is in it. A native of 
Indiana, she grew up in Chicago and 
studied at Bryn Mawr and at the Sor- 
bonne in Paris. 

Miss Kimbrough got her first job in the 
advertising department of Marshall Field, 
Chicago, when, as she says, "I had no 
right to get it. My approach was all 
wrong and so was my appearance. I was 
wearing a picture hat and carrying my 
dog. I was dressed for a party, not a posi- 

But she went on from that uncomforta- 
ble point to become editor of Field's 
"Fashions of the Hour" and one of the 
country's best-dressed women, her smart- 
ness always as unstudied as her humor. 
Her book, "Through Charley's Door," was 
the hilarious account of her experiences 
at Chicago's great department store. 

One day when she came back from 
lunch, she found the editor of the Ladies' 
Home Journal waiting for her. Sure that 
she knew what his mission was, she told 
him politely but firmly that "Fashions of 
the Hour" would not use LHJ patterns. 
The editor listened calmly and mutely to 
this, then told Miss Kimbrough that he 
hadn't come about patterns at all; he 
merely wanted to offer her the fashion 
editor's post at the Ladies' Home Journal. 

After recovering from her embarrass- 
ment, she took the job. Later, when she 
was made managing editor, it was with 
the secret hope in the inner sanctum at 
the publishing company that she would be 
sufficiently impressed with her own im- 
portance to conduct herself in a manner 
becoming her position. It had been Miss 
Kimbrough's inflexible habit to inspect 
fashion sketches on the floor, flat on her 
stomach. As managing editor, it still was 
Miss Kimbrough's flexible habit to inspect 
fashion sketches on the floor — the only 
variant being that she sometimes rolled 
over on her back and held the sketches 
at arm's length. Eventually this provoked 
carefully worded "memos" citing the dig- 
nity of the company, the publication's re- 
sponsibility to its readers, etc. There is 
no record that these "memos" had the 
desired effect. 

When she and Cornelia Otis Skinner, 
her life-long friend, turned out their hilari- 
ous work, "Our Hearts Were Young and 
Gay," it was almost a foregone conclusion 
that Hollywood would snap it up. What 
the authors did not anticipate was that 
Hollywood would snap them up too. Of- 
fered a contract as technical advisors in 
the filming of the book, they went to 
Hollywood — not, one should add, without 
incident. Their stay was so full of inci- 
dent that it provided Miss Kimbrough 
with material for another book, "We Fol- 
lowed Our Hearts to Hollywood." 

Her third book, "How Dear to My 
leart," was the story of Miss Kimbrough's 
childhood in Muncie, Indiana. "The In- 
nocents from Indiana" was the account of 
the migration of the Kimbrough family to 
Chicago, where she left no little impres- 
sion on the mid-west metropolis. 

Another book, "It Gives Me Great 
Pleasure," was a collection of Miss Kim- 
brough's observations, impressions and 
conclusions, garnered from her many 
trans-continental tours of lecturing be- 
fore all sorts of groups. A genial satire, 
t poked gentle fun — but showed the au- 
thor's sympathetic understanding — of the 
woman's club. It was such a success that 
her publisher elected to put out a new 
and revised edition in 1958. 

For several years Miss Kimbrough pur- 
sued a successful career as motion picture 
writer in Hollywood. Unlike many au- 
thors who became impatient with movie- 
dom's capital, she loved Hollywood. "In 
Hollywood," she says, "there is an aware- 
ness that everyone around you is working. 
You catch fire from each other's work 
and there is always an impetus to pro-

Dutch Flier 

By Chip Burkhardt 

Lebanon Valley College brought to a close the '61 -'62 basketball 
season on Saturday night with an 88-39 victory over Rutgers (South 
Jersey). With this victory, the college basketball careers of four seniors 
also came to a close. Art Forstater from Central High School in Philadel- 
phia, bowed out as the team's leading playmaker with 8 points and 9 
assists. Hi Fitzgerald from Columbia led the team in scoring with 19 
points and pulled down 15 rebounds. Russ Urey of Red Lion and Dick 
Rhine of Annville chipped in with 4 and 2 points, respectively. 

Coach Grider's chargers completed their season with a 10-10 log. 
The season opened badly with E-town defeating us and by the Christmas 
break we stood at 1-3. The squad came back strongly after the rest with 
three consecutive wins over Muhlenberg, Moravian and Wilkes before 
dropping four in a row to E-town, Albright, PMC and Gettysburg. Wins 
over Washington and F & M made the record more respectable, then a 
loss to Moravian followed by a win at Dickinson and consecutive losses at 
Albright and Drexel left the team with a three game deficit. In the closing 
contests, the Dutchmen stormed back to a .500 season with wins over 
Dickinson, Lycoming, and Rutgers. 

Individual scoring performances were led by Hi Fritzgerald with 348 
points, Art Forstater with 271, and Bill Koch with 217. Tom Knapp 
finished strongly with a total of 172. 

Since complete records are lacking at present, final totals will be 
printed at a later date. 

Rutgers Bows To LVC 
In Seasons Last Game 

The Dutchmen scored a victory over 
Rutgers of South Jersey last Saturday to 
close the season with a 10-10 record for 
the Valley. 

The final score was 88-39. It was no 
contest from the opening tap. Even 
though the Valley shooting was not excep- 
tionally accurate the score continued to 
mount and at half time stood 37-22. The 
scoring during the period had been well 
distributed with all but one member of 
the squad scoring. In the second half 
LV added 51 additional points to 17 for 
Rutgers. Every one hit the scoring 
column and the game ended at 88-39 — a 
forty-nine point margin. 

Hi Fitzgerald scored 19 points bringing 
his career total to 920 and Tom Knapp, 
Bill Koch and Terry Herr followed in 
double figures with 14, 10, and 10. 

Caldwell led Rutgers with a total of

LV Defeats Lycoming 
Following Slow Start 

Lebanon Valley cagers came from a 41- 
33 half time deficit to top Lycoming at 
Williamsport Wednesday, February 28, 

The Dutchmen got off to a slow start 
in the first half and were soon trailing. 
Although they kept the score close for 
the greater part of the period. Hal Judis' 
shooting had L. V. trailing by 8 at the 
half. Judis had scored 15 of the 41 points 
totaled by Lycoming. 

Going into an all court press to start 
the second half, Coach Grider's chargers 
soon began to close the gap. Finally, 
after a pair of foul shots by Hi Fitzgerald 
had tied the score, Art Forstater pumped 
in a goal putting L. V. in front. From 
this point on they were never headed. 

Fitzgerald led the scoring attack with 
29 markers followed by Tom Knapp (20) 
and Russ Urey (10). 

Judis was high for Lycoming with 19. 
The win put the L. V. seasonal record at

Useful tilings, matches — but deadly. Just one dropped carelessly while still glowing, can start a rampaging forest fire. 

Loss of life . . . loss of irreplaceable timber, range and grazing lands. . . . loss of vacation areas and wildlife: all 

this from a dropped match, or cigarette. 

During these fire hazard months, a match is especially deadly. And every year our forests become ever more vital 

to the national welfare. 

So be doubly careful this year. Crush smokes ... be sure matches and all fires are out.

Presbyterians Seek 
Work Corps Recruits 

NEW YORK— About a thousand col- 
lege students will put their human rela- 
tions and technical skills to the test again 
this summer as members of a volunteer 
work corps sent over the nation and the 
world under the auspices of the United 
Presbyterian Church, U.S.A. 

More than 250 of them will take part 
in the drama of urban renewal taking 
place in many of this nation's cities. Oth- 
ers will work on Indian reservations, 
hold vacation church schools in fishing 
villages of Southeast Alaska, develop 
community recreation programs in old 
Spanish villages in New Mexico, work in 
hospitals, clinics, schools and community 
service projects in the Southern Moun- 
tains and Puerto Rico. 

About a hundred will work in Chicago 
in settlement houses, churches, interracial 
centers, and an extensive camp program. 
Before beginning their work, they will at- 
tend extensive orientation sessions, during 
which they will meet with juvenile court 
authorities, social workers, urban develop- 
ment experts, and members of the youth 

Thousands of other college men and 
women will participate in ecumenical 
work camps abroad. These camps, con- 
ducted under the sponsorship of the 
World Council of Churches, will bring 
together young people of various racial, 
national, and denominational backgrounds 
from all over the world. 

One project will involve the construc- 
tion of a medical and social center in 
Hualpencillo, Chile, which was recently 
ravaged by an earthquake. In Africa stu- 
dents will aid new independent nations in 
construction projects, and medical and 
educational programs. Still others will 
work in Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Fin- 
land, France, Germany, Great Britain, 
Greece, Iceland, Italy, Holland, Norway, 
Portugal, Sweden, and Switzerland. 

In Lamont, California, the ecumenical 
volunteers will work with members of a 
Lutheran Church in a recreation and 
teaching program for the children of mi- 
grant workers. They will also hold an 
evening program for adults and build a 
community center. 

Students interested in participating in 
any of these four-to-ten-week programs 
may obtain additional information from 
the Presbyterian Summer Service and 
Study Projects, 825 Witherspoon Build- 
ing, Philadelphia 7, Pa. Cooperating in 
the program is the Presbyterian Church, 
U.S., as well as United Presbyterian, 

Volunteers are generally expected to 
pay their own transportation costs. How- 
ever, limited scholarship aid is available. 
Applications will be accepted from stu- 
dents of other than Presbyterian back-

Directory Lists Jobs 
Available To Students 

A directory which lists summer jobs 
for college students throughout the Uni- 
ted States will be available in the Leba- 
non Valley College library. Also, a con- 
siderable number of public libraries now 
have a copy on this directory. 

The Summer Employment Directory 

gives the names and addresses of 1,367 
organizations which want to employ col- 
lege students. It also gives the positions 
open, salary, and suggestions on how to 
make application — a sample letter of ap- 
plication and a personal data sheet. 

There are all types of summer jobs 
listed in every state; there are jobs at 
resorts in the New England states, the 
Northeastern states, the Great Lakes area, 
and the Western states. 

Students wishing summer work make 
application to the employers listed in the 
directory. Employers are included at their 
own request, and they invite applications 
from college students. Any student inter- 
ested in obtaining his own Summer Em- 
ployment Directory may do so by sending 
$3.00 to the publisher: National Directory 
Service, Dept. C, Box 32065, Cincinnati

U. S. and German history. The selection 
committee will also base their judgement 
on the student's seriousness of purpose, 
good character and demonstrated potential 
for social adjustment. 

The cost per student for the year 
abroad will amount to approximately $1,- 
500. This will include round-trip trans- 
portation from New York to Marburg, 
tuition, board, room, some group travel 
in Europe and student activity fees. The 
group will leave about August 17 and 
finish official study at Marburg about June 
1, 1963. 

There are still openings available to 
students of LVC in this program. Any- 
one desiring further information on the 
program should contact Dean Marquette.

Continued from Page 4, Col. 3 

the choir performed these waltzes with a 
faithfully romantic feeling, and a tone 
quality well suited to music of this kind. 
The performance was highly enjoyable, 
and our only criticism stems from a per- 
sonal dissatisfaction with the Liebeslieder 
Waltzes (they can hardly be said to rep- 
resent Brahms at his best) themselves. It 
should be here noted that the two pianists 
— Dennis Sweigart and David Kreider — 
did a more than creditable job with the 

The Brazilian Psalm by Jean Berger 
was well performed, and in this work the 
choir exhibited perhaps its finest tone and 
dynamic control of the evening. A group 
of Negro Spirituals followed. Although 
Go Tell It on the Mountain was con- 
vincingly performed, the arrangement em- 
ployed nearly disqualified it as an au- 
thentic spiritual. Deep River, on the other 
hand, was quite inspiring and conveyed 
quite well the emotion associated with 
music of this type. The last of the spiri- 
tuals, Some of These Mornin's, seemed to 
be of a revivalistic nature, and, as can be 
said generally for the three spirituals, was 
quite well accepted, and enthusiastically 

H. J. Bishop's Lo, Hear the Gentle 
Lark, performed by soprano Sandra Stet- 
ler, is obviously quite difficult, and we 
feel that any lack of quality in Miss Stet- 
ler's performance can be attributed to the 
rigors of the recent tour, since her Senior 
Recital, presented earlier this semester, 
proved her more than capable of dealing 
with music of this caliber. 

The same comment can be made of the 
performance of the Bugle Song of Tom 
Scott, with which Miss Stetler opened the 
fifth section of the program. We might 
add that the excellently performed trumpet 
obligato of this work, played by Ray 
Lichtenwalter, added much to the stirring 
nature of the piece. The African Walk- 
ing Song, Flo Me La, provided that splash 
of color which always makes for an in- 
teresting concert. Ken Anderson's ingen- 
ious orchestration of this work is a credit 
.o his obvious talent along this line. 

The last offering of the concert, R. E. 
Williams's Era of Peace, seemed almost 
anticlimactic in the general dullness of its 
straight-forward harmonic structure and 
unimaginative melodic style. The choir 
again proved itself capable of fine tone 
and excellent dynamic contrast. 

In spite of what may seem to some a 
rather harsh criticism, we feel that the 
concert in general was of an unusually 
high caliber for any college choir. Un- 
fortunately, there did seem to be an oc- 
casional inbalance of parts, with the ex- 
cellent but perhaps overly large bass sec- 
tion predominating, but this cannot be 
said to have materially detracted from the 
enjoyment of the concert as a whole. We 
must remark in closing, then, that Mr. 
Pierce Getz has done an excellent job in 
his first season as director of the Concert 
Choir, and we look forward expectantly to 
future years of fine choral music at Leba- 
non Valley College.

Program Honors 
Three Professors 

Dr. Samuel O. Grimm, Dr. V. Earl Light, and Mr. R. Porter Camp- 
bell were honored in a special Founders' Day chapel today featuring the 
Concert Choir. 

Tribute was paid to Dr. Grimm for 
fifty years of service by Dr. Jacob L. 
Rhodes, a former student who succeeded 
him as chairman of the physics depart- 
ment in 1957. Dr. Grimm became prin- 
cipal of Lebanon Valley Academy upon 
his graduation in 1912. In 1917 He was 
named professor of physics and educa- 
tion; in 1920 he became registrar and head 
of the physics department. He resigned 
these latter posts in 1948 and 1957, re- 
spectively. Dr. Grimm has also served as 
treasurer, business manager, and history 
teacher, and is at present secretary of the 
college board of trustees. 

Dr. Allen H. Heim of Resources Re- 
search Incorporated, Washington, D. C., 
read a citation to his former teacher Dr. 
Light who has announced his retirement 
as professor of biology at the end of this 
semester. Before he came to Valley in 
1929 Dr. Light had taught in an ungraded 
country school. In 1950 he became chair- 
man of the biology department, a post he 
held until 1957, when he resigned his ad- 
ministrative duties in order to devote more 
time to teaching and research. He de- 
signed and built the college mace and has 
added extensively to the fossil, seed, and 
shell collections in the biology depart- 
ment's museum. 

Mr. Campbell, who also is retiring this 
year, was honored by Mr. Pierce A. Getz, 
a former student. After earning a di- 
ploma in pianoforte from LVC in 1915 
Mr. Campbell joined the faculty as a 
teacher of pianoforte, history, and theory. 
He received a diploma in organ and his 
bachelor of music degree before entering 
military service in 1917. Discharged in 
1919, he studied in New York for a year 
before returning to LVC. In 1959 Mr. 
Campbell became an associate professor 
of organ with part-time teaching. 

Dr. Grimm, Dr. Light, and Mr. Camp- 
bell will be guests of honor tonight at the 
annual dinner given by President Miller 
for the faculty and administrative staff of 
the college. Dr. George G. Struble will 
serve as toastmaster at the dinner to be 
held at the Hotel Hershey. 

Edward V. Mirmak Wins 
NSF Mathematics Award 

Edward V. Mirmak, senior mathematics 
major, has been awarded a National Sci- 
ence Foundation Graduate Fellowship, ac- 
cording to an announcement by the 
foundation directo r at Washington, D. C. 

The NSF fellow- 
ship is for advanced 
study toward a doc- 
torate in mathema- 
tical probability and 
statistics at Prince- 
ton University's 
Graduate College. 

The National Sci- 
ence Foundation, an 
agency of the fed- 
Ed Mirmak eral government, a- 
wards graduate fellowships in science, 
mathematics and engineering. NSF Fel- 
lows are not obligated to either the 
Foundation or the United States Govern- 
ment with regard to future employment 
or service. 

Ed took the nationwide Graduate Rec- 
ord Exams for Advanced Tests in Mathe- 
matics given by the Educational Testing 
Service at Franklin and Marshall College 
last January before winning consideration 
for a NSF Fellowship Award. 

Graduating from the J. P. McCaskey 
High School in the Class of 1958 with a 
fifth-place scholastic standing, Ed then

and students from eastern and central Pennsylvania as well as students and 
alumni of LVC will participate in the event. 
Morning activities which begin at 10:00 

involve registration, brunch, and campus 
tours. From noon to 12:30, Dr. Miller 
and Mr. John Billman of the Department 
of Public Instruction of Pennsylvania will 
discuss the introduction of economic edu- 
cation and cultural anthropology in the 
Pennsylvania public schools. 

Following that discussion in Carnegie

College Dining Hall for dinner and the 
keynote speech which Senator Clark will 

Seminars in the areas of economics and 
business administration, history and 
political science and sociology followed 
by a General Assembly will round out the 
day's program. Seminar speakers are Dr. 
Howard Cutler, professor of economics, 
director of general education, and assistant 
to the president, Pennsylvania State Uni- 
versity; Dr. Sidney Wise, associate profes- 
sor of government, director of Pennsyl-

To achieve this he outlined these ob- 
jectives for the program: to promote an 
awareness of the challenges, opportunities, 
and responsibilities of the social sciences; 
to promote more effective education in the 
social sciences in the secondary schools 
and in higher education; and to explore 
means whereby more effective coordina- 
tion and co-operation may be achieved by 
high schools and colleges in their objective 
of seeking excellence in the social sci-

A Journalistic Right 

Now and then it becomes necessary to remind people that criticism is 
a vital, constructive function in education, and not an exploitive technique. 
Along with compliments received by La Vie on the critical review column, 
"Crotchets," which appeared in the last issue, there were strong objections 
voiced by some members of the department of music. Some comment on 
the justification of a newspaper in printing such a column is in order. 

Every democratic newspaper in the country prints critical reviews of 
concerts, recitals, movies, plays, books, etc., and any performer or author 
expects to be reviewed. The artist is, in fact, often complimented that he is 
important enough to draw the attention of the reviewers. Besides, such 
commentary is not all negative, and reviews can enhance public interest in 
an artist and his work as often as they discourage it. 

a reviewer is expected to have perception and insight into what makes 
a good performance — he does not have to be able to equal the ability 
of the artist nor have studied as extensively as the artist in his particular 
field. He must know what excellence in that field consists of and be able 
to recognize it when he sees it. A look at New York Times reviewers and 
various magazine commentators will confirm this. 

If performers are unduly humiliated or overly jubilant when the re- 
views come out, this is not the concern of the paper. A newspaper is not 
obligated to withhold a column simply because the author or artist being 
reviewed is too proud or too sensitive to take it gracefully. When a person 
prepares a presentation for the public, he has to be emotionally prepared 
to take the consequences, favorable or otherwise. Performers and readers 
usually take a critical review for what they feel it is worth, considering the 
source and keeping in mind previous accomplishments of the artist. If 
one respects the reviewer's opinion, he can profit from the criticism; if 
not, he can ignore it. 

No one is ever above criticism in a democracy. This is why the 
principles of free speech and press are so carefully guarded. Criticism is 
known to have a constructive function in the growth of a nation as well as 
in the maturing of personality. Much criticism passes through the nation's 
papers, and a great deal of it is criticism of the press itself! Perhaps this 
is why it is so difficult for the calloused representatives of the press, so 
conditioned to facing and benefiting from criticism, to comprehend any 
basis for objections to critical reviews. 

All of us are going to be open to criticism whether we are presenting 
concerts, writing books, building bridges, teaching children or anything 
else. And at LVC we are not trying to isolate ourselves from the world, 
but to prepare ourselves for it. La Vie purports to contribute to this pre- 
paration. (JMK) 

Yes And No 

Excellent planning, superior publicity and an abundance of high spirit 
among the fellows all contributed to the highly successful presentation of 
the Brothers Four Friday evening. 

Thank you, men of Kappa Lambda Sigma. According to Jesse Mat- 
lack, advisor of Kalo, this was the largest number of people ever to gather 
in the Lynch Memorial Gymnasium at one time. Perhaps Kalo has set 
a precedent! 

In sharp contrast to this event there was the APO dance Saturday 
evening. The attendance at this dance was infinitesimally small. The 
UMOC dance is considered an important event on many campuses. The 
campaigning for the "ugly man" is known to all and is really a contest. 
It's a shame that practically no one knew about the dance. There were 
many "imports" on campus this weekend with next to nothing planned for 
them. If the UMOC dance had been more widely publicized I am sure that 
there would have been more "crowning" the UMOC than attending the 
local theater. Reports show that "Butterfield 8" attracted more Valley 
students than the APO semi-formal dance. 

Why couldn't the two fraternities, Kalo and APO, have combined 
their efforts and sponsored what is commonly referred to on other campuses 
as a "big weekend?" 

Let's try harder next year! How about a few organized weekends on 
the Lebanon Valley campus open to the entire student body? (KLK) 

Letters To The Editor 

Student Objects To 'Crotchets' 
To the Editor of La Vie: 

Most educated musicians would let the 
music criticisms presented in the previous 
issue of La Vie drift quietly out of the 
memories of the readers and into the lim- 
bo of musical quackery whence they be- 
long. But I, largely uneducated in the 
field of music in general, who do not con- 
sider myself capable of offering intelligent 
criticisms of performers and performances 
that excel by a great degree anything that 
I could do, cannot let the matter rest. I, 
being curious, for judging from the names 
of the critics, this field is wide open to 
anyone, would like some information so 
that I too may take up the task of being 
a good critic. 

First of all, what are their credentials? 
In other words, upon what scholarship are 
their conclusions based? Surely they have 
something with which to support them- 
selves. Take the Bach, for instance. They 
criticized the manner of its performance. 
Are they aware of the controversy be- 
tween noted authorities, whose books ap- 
pear on the shelves of the college library, 
as to just how expressive one can be with 
Bach's music before it becomes unstylistic? 
Have they heard the vast differences in 
the performances of that master's works 
by Landowska, Tureck, and Glenn Gould? 
Each of these people is considered to hold 
authoritative opinions arrived at only 
after years of study. Is it one of these 
upon which their opinion is based, or is 
it gleaned from their own long years of 
research and study — with whom? 

Now let us consider the Mephf.sto 
Waltz, which performance was accused of 
wandering without the bounds of the origi- 
nal score. All good music critics know 
that there are three versions, by Liszt him- 
self, of this work. So much for the Liszt. 

As to criticizing mistakes in a perform- 
ance. What, really, is the value of it? 
Does a mistake or two during a perform- 
ance necessarily destroy the performance 
as a whole? Does it deserve a column in 
the college sheet? I question the discre- 
tion and values of the paper and its editor 
if this is the case. 

If a column such as this is to be purely 
personal opinion, then what is the value 
of it — of personal opinion, based not on 
scholarship, but on individual preference 
backed by no authority whatsoever? Is 
it worthy of the large space given to it in 
the college newspaper? If this is so, the 
paper could just as well degenerate into 
a bi-weekly journal of opinion about the 
weather and other such drivel. 

Respectfully submitted,

La Vie Inquires 

Students Criticize 
Issue Of 'Warthog' 

By Betsy Miller 

Last Tuesday this campus first saw its newest student publication, 
The 13th Warthog. The first page of the magazine stated in part that 
this is to be a outlet for anyone who feels that something must be said, 
to advance the college through a small amount of selected constructive 
criticism, and to bring an awareness of the necessity of intellectual con- 
sideration of daily activities and conduct. Do the students feel that this 
magazine is an improvement to the campus? 

Judy Ruhl: "I 

thought it was very 
good for the first 
issue, but there are 
many ways it can 
be improved upon. 
For future issues I 
think the staff 
should definitely 
decide whether they 
are going to publish 
Betsy Miller a college humor 
magazine or a more serious literary maga- 

Donna Bre,ssler: "I was expecting more 
of a satire magazine and think that some- 
thing like this would be better for this 
campus. If it becomes more serious, as 
they say it will, it will be just duplication 
of the Green Blotter publication." 

Barry Lutz: "I saw nothing spectacular 
about it and thought it was only fair. Per- 
haps less "humor" and more seriousness 
could improve it, but . . . I'll wait and see. 
It definitely needs something." 

Curt Miller: "Simply as something to 
read, I enjoyed it. I think, perhaps, that 
it resembled the Green Blotter magazine 

too much. 1 understand, however, that 
they are planning certain changes which 
make it sound to me like something well 
worth having on campus." 

George Plitnik: "I was sorry I wasted 
my time reading it, but I must confess 
that I smiled wryly as I looked it over. 
The "poetry" seemed to be only a repi- 
tition of old cliches written in free-verse 
(perhaps because it is too hard to write 
good poetry with rhyme and meter, with- 
out making it sound corny). This "jour- 
nal of aesthetics" seemed to be only an 
excuse for the authors to air their views 
on rather mundane things. Perhaps if the 
publication were to appear less frequently 
(like once every decade), it might contain 
only vintage poetry of proven worth." 

Charles Deitzel: "I thought it was very 
good for a beginning — it's something this 
campus has needed. It's a chance for stu- 
dents and faculty members as well to 
communicate their ideas to the campus as 
a whole. It was intellectually stimulating 
to learn what some of the other people 
are thinking. And I was a bit surprised 
to find that other people are thinking the 
same things I am." 

Pro Fraternity 

Why can't we have national fraternities on this campus? A few 
months ago La Vie published an editorial concerning this controversial 
subject. Perhaps I should have spoken up then, but I felt as though I 
needed some time to formulate my opinions. The main question seems 
to be, "What worth will national fraternities have on this campus?" I have 
talked to several people from other colleges who belong to national frater- 
nities. They have, I believe, given me the answers to the question. 

National fraternities would give Lebanon Valley national social pres- 
tige besides its academic standing. It would give "Valleyites" a sense of 
"belonging" to the whole realm of colleges who have national fraternities. 
I feel that we are set apart, and don't have as much in common with other 
colleges. To put it bluntly, I feel left out and isolated. National fraternities 
would help us finance social functions. Belonging to them would make 
membership more meaningful. They would give Lebanon Valley the 
companionship of fellow members all over the United States. I agree with 
one fraternity member when he said, "What a feeling it is to be able to 
walk into any chapter in the nation and be welcome." 

Many people are opposed to national fraternities because they feel 
that they would increase social life to the point where studies would be 
jeopardized. I say that national fraternities would create a constructive 
social life. Too many weekends are wasted on this campus. Students 
often complain about having nothing to do. We certainly don't study the 
whole weekend. Should we? Is there too much emphasis on the social 
and not enough on the academic? I don't think so. I came to college to 
receive an education, but I also came so that I might meet many kinds of 
people. I know that by having national fraternities we could get to know 
what other colleges are like, and what their people are like. I truthfully 
don't know anything about big schools and universities. Are we afraid of 
subjecting our students to the "big, bad outside"? If we are fortunate 
enough to gain the approval of joining a national fraternity, I feel that the 
local members would strive for better grades and commendable social func- 
tions, to "show" those who bitterly oppose them that "it can be done." 


pretty girls and Barry Goldwater — Barry 
Goldwater? — Good grief! It was a poli- 
tical convention.

God's private army?), Sen. Goldwater told 
those assembled that "conservatism is the 
wave of the future." Watch out for the

By Dave Grove and Curt Miller 

A good deal of the music of Bach was 
played in the two student recitals presented 
on the 13th and the 15th of this month. 
The question of how Bach should be 
played is always one of great interest to 
musicians and music lovers, and it is 
closely related to one of the basic prob- 
lems of all musical performance. 

In our last column we frequently men- 
tioned the "emotional response" to the 
music by the performer that is necessary 
for an effective performance. We failed, 
though, to define exactly this response, 
and since it is so important, we will say a 
few words about it now. First we must 
consider the question whether a performer 
is justified in trying to respond in this way 
to any piece of music. The answer (with 
the possible exception of some modern, 
completely objective "music") is emphati- 
cally yes. 

Music is, in its essential nature, an out- 
pouring of the whole being of its com- 
poser, an outpouring from both technical 
skills and subjective, emotional factors in 
his personality. The manifestations of 
both of these faculties must be present at 
a performance in order to make the music 
meaningful to its listeners, although one 
of the two may be much more apparent 
than the other. Thus, in the music of 
Bach, the objective element, that is to say, 
the apparent pre-occupation with form is 
predominant on the surface. And yet the 
subjective element is very definitely there 
also, and the necessity of responding to 
this subjective element while coping ade- 
quately with the technical difficulties of 
the music is one of the great problems in 
performing Bach. It is for this same rea- 
son that the music of the Romantic com- 
posers seems more spontaneous and im- 
mediately enjoyable; because the subjec- 
tive element is emphasized and can easily 
be brought out, and of course it is to sub- 
jective, "personal" music that we respond 
most easily. 

This, then, is one of the great problems 
in the performance of music — to balance 
the subjective (emotional) and the objec- 
tive aspects of the music in such a way as 
to produce a unified whole. 

Seminar Leaders Possess 
Interesting Backgrounds 

Serving as directors of the Social Sci- 
ence Day seminars are Dr. Howard A. 
Cutler, Dr. Sidney Wise, and Dr. Eugene 
I. Knez. 

Traveling from Pennsylvania State Uni- 
versity where he is assistant to the presi- 
dent and professor of economics, Dr. Cut- 
ler will direct the economics and business 
administration seminar. His educational 
background includes a B.A. in English 
literature and an M.A. in economics from 
the State University of Iowa and his Ph.D. 
in economics from Columbia University. 

Dr. Cutler is presently the managing 
editor of The Journal of General Educa- 
tion and is the author of numerous arti- 
cles and reports. He has traveled exten- 
sively in Mexico, Canada, Cuba, and the 
United States. 

Social Science Day participants attend- 
ing the history and political science semi- 
nar will meet Dr. Wise, associate profes- 
sor at Franklin and Marshall College. As 
the current director of the Pennsylvania 
Center for Education in Politics, past em- 
ployee of the federal, state and local gov- 
ernments, and active participant in local 
Democratic politics, Dr. Wise possesses 
extensive background with which to form- 
ulate his ideas and remarks. 

Concluding the trio of seminars will be 
Dr. Knez who will speak to the sociology 
group. Dr. Knez is associate curator of 
the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, 
D. C, and comes to LVC under the au- 
spices of the American Anthropological 
Association and the National Science 

Arriving on campus March 23, he will 
speak to I.S. 15 and 30, and Sociology 21 
classes, in addition to informal individual 
conferences in the afternoon. 

Receiving his D.S.S. in anthropology 
from Syracuse University, Dr. Knez has 
gone on to specialize in the ethnology and 
cultural history in northeast Asia.

Panel Discusses 
Ionizing Radiation 

By Betsy Miller 

Danger from radiation, particularly radiation from atomic fallout, is 
a much discussed topic and one which often becomes the subject of fear- 
ful speculation because so few people know much about it. In an attempt 
to make clear what science knows about it today, the Physics Club held 
a panel discussion on Monday, March 19 to consider the physical, chemi- 
cal and biological aspects of ionizing radiation. 

Ionizing radiation was defined as elec- 
tromagnetic waves or particles that have 
sufficient energy to remove electrons from 
atoms or molecules thus modifying their 
chemical behavior. An atom or molecule 
left without some of its electrons interacts 
with the neutral molecules around it in 
an attempt to regain the lost electrons. 
The result of these interactions is the for- 
mation of some new molecules and the re- 
lease of fragments of molecules. These 
fragments react with the material around 
them to form the final chemical products. 
In a living organism this is followed by a 
stage in which the organism tries to ad- 
just to the new material present. 

In a living cell there are two possible 
reactions to radiation. If the amount of 
radiation received is less than 300 roent- 
gens (a roentgen is approximately the 
amount of radiation received from a medi- 
cal chest x-ray), the cell may be prevented 
from multiplying for some time, after 
which it returns to normal. If the dose 
received is much above this, a certain 
number of cells which multiply after some 
delay, will not divide normally. The dam- 
age so produced can never be repaired 
and after a few divisions, all the cells 
derived from the damaged cell will die. 
The damage which causes death is the 
breaking of chromosones. 

Synthesis of Chromosomes Discussed 

The exact way in which chromosones 
are broken is not well understood. The 
present view of the way is a synthesis of 
two theories, a mechanical theory which 
says that chromosone break occurs when 
radiation snaps the chromosone as a bullet 
snaps a cable, and the opposite view, which 
says that the ionizing radiation interferes 
with the ability of the cell to make chro- 
mosome material. This breakdown of syn- 
thesis is interpreted as chromosome break. 
Experimental evidence has forced the 
modification of the theory so that it now 
contains the following three assumptions. 
A break is said to be produced everytime 
a particle passes close to or through a 
chromosome. Exposure to infrared radia- 
tion increases sensitivity so that smaller 
radiation doses produce the same damage. 
Finally, the number of chromosomes 
broken by a given dose depends on the 
amount of oxygen present. This last con- 
dition arises because cell division occurs 
more frequently when more oxygen is 
present and cells are most sensitive to radi- 
ation during certain stages of division. 
"Radiation Sickness" Explained 

The effect of radiation on the body as 
a whole also depends on the seriousness 
of the dose. If the body receives 200 
roentgens in one dose, no symptoms ap- 
pear until the third week. Symptoms are 
mainly loss of hair, loss of appetite and 
sore throat, but no death normally results. 
The median lethal dose, 400 roentgens, al- 
so causes no symptoms until the third 
week when loss of hair, loss of appetite, 
fever and pallor begin. The person ir- 
radiated with this dose has a 50-50 chance 
of survival. When the dose reaches 600 
roentgens, symptoms are immediate nausea 
and vomiting, later diarrhea and sore 
throat and finally certain death. If a per- 
son receives the same dose over a period 
of days or weeks, he may survive a nor- 
mally fatal dose. 

Fallout Percentage Considered 

But what amount of the radiation now 
received is actually fallout from atomic 
explosions? Atomic explosions produce 
many types of radiation, but only a few 
are important to man because they re- 
lease their energy when it is most likely 
to affect a human. Some particles release 
energy so fast that most of the dangerous 
energy is released while the fallout is still 
in the air and other particles take 1000 
years or more to release an appreciable 
amount of energy. If it lodges in a hu- 
man, he will die of natural causes before 
this energy is released. The dangerous

Distaff Basketball Closes 
Wi f h Win Over Moravian 

The women's basketball team ended 
their season by defeating Moravian 28-24 
on March 8. Jo Ann Freed led the scor- 
ing with 17 points. Pat Shonk had 9 and 
Sally Gerhart, 2. 

The starting line-up was as follows: 
forwards, Jo Ann Freed (co-captain), Pat 
Shonk and Sally Gerhart; guards, Liz 
Gluyas (co-captain), Nancy Dutro and 
Vinnie Beckner. 

Substitute forwards were Joy Dixon, 
Sandy Beltz, Karen Lutz, Kay Cassel and 
Marilyn Loy. Substituting as guards were 
Virginia Bergey, Evelyn Orchard and Lin- 
da Plequette. 

Scores for the season were (opponents' 
score first): Millersville, 26-24 and 30-29; 
Shippensburg, 46-32; E-Town, 31-22; 
Muhlenburg, 42-39 overtime, and Mora- 
vian, 24-28. Although the girls won only 
one game, Coach Betty Jane Bowman 
noted that many of the scores were close, 
indicating some hard play by LVC's team. 

types of particles are Strontium 90, 
Cesium 137, radio iodine, radio barium, 
and radio phosphorus. Comparing the 
amount of the genetically important radi- 
ation to which the average American is ex- 
posed, 50% comes from Medical and 
dental x-rays, 40% comes from natural 
sources such as cosmic rays, the sun and 
radiation in rocks and the soil, 2.5% is 
from television receivers, 5% comes from 
peaceful uses of atomic power, luminous 
watches, etc. and 2.5% comes from fall- 
out. The maximum allowable dose set by 
the Federal Radiation Council has caused 
concern because it is set low, and it seems 
that there may be danger of going beyond 
the maximum allowable dosage if atomic 
testing is continued for a sufficiently long 
time. It is not likely that danger will re- 
sult even if ten times the maximum allow- 
able dosage is received. Radiation work- 
ers are allowed a dose of 5 roentgens per 
year and it is not considered dangerous. 
The damage to the individual is likely to 
be negligible but the possibility of genetic 
damage exists with any exposure to radia- 
tion. It is believed that radiation should 
be kept as low as possible since the gene- 
tic effect is not completely known. If 
radiation level is kept below the maximum 
allowable dose for the general population, 
genetic damage will be extremely slight 
even if a small portion of the population 
receives a larger dose. If precautions are 
taken to keep the fallout level low, there 
seems to be little reason for excessive fear. 

The Prophet 

A Book Review by Judy Ruhl 
The Prophet, by Kahlil Gibran, has be- 
come one of the classics of our time. In 
this book is expressed the deepest impulses 
of man's heart and mind. The philosophy 
of this work and the musical quality of it 
produce a masterpiece of poetry. 

Kahlil Gibran was born in Lebanon in 
1883. He became distinguished as a poet, 
philosopher and artist, and his fame and 
influence have spread far beyond the 
Near East. To many Arabic-speaking 
peoples he is considered the genius of 
his time. To innumerable Americans his 
philosophy has given them a deeper and 
more satisfying meaning to life. Gibran 
died in 1931 and the last twenty years 
of his life were spent in the United States. 

The Prophet is Gibran's masterpiece. It 
was published in 1923 and has since been 
translated into more than twenty lan- 
guages. Gibran also considered this work 
his greatest achievement. 

"Then said a rich man, Speak to us 
of Giving. And he answered: You give 
but little when you give of your pos- 
sessions. It is when you give of your- 
self that you truly give. For what are 
your possessions but things you keep 
and guard for fear you may need them 
tomorrow? ... It is well to give when 
asked, but it is better to give unasked, 
through understanding; . . . For in truth 
it is life that gives unto life — while you, 
who deem yourself a giver, are but a 

Perhaps The Prophet is the best exam- 
ple of Gibran's austere purity of thought. 
It possesses the finest qualities of poetry — 
amplitude, beauty of phrasing, wisdom, 
serenity and lofty vision. It is beautiful, 
colorful and exalted. 

Gibran's artistic capabilities are also 
well recognized. Many of his works are 
illustrated with his mystical drawings. 
These illustrations are a complement and 
an inseparable part of his profound in- 
sight into human life. His drawings and 
paintings have been exhibited all over the 

Before his death Gibran had been work- 
ing on a book intended to be a companion 
piece to The Prophet. It was entitled The 
Garden Of The Prophet and was pub- 
lished after his death in 1933. Here, as in 
his preceding work, are found his deep 
wisdom and his mystic sense of beauty 
that are combined into a language of pure 

"The image of the morning sun in 
a dewdrop is not less than the sun. The 
reflection of life in your soul is not less 
than life . . . Shall a dewdrop say; 'But 
once in a thousand years am I even a 
dewdrop,' speak you and answer it say- 
ing: 'Know you not that the light of 
all the years is shining in your circle?' " 
Claude Bragdon writes of Gibran: 
"His power came from some great re- 
servoir of spiritual life else it could not 
have been so universal and potent, but the 
majesty and beauty of the language with 
which he clothed it were all his own." 

Campus Organists Form 
Student Group Of AGO 

The recently organized Guild Student 
Group of the American Guild of Organ- 
ists held its first formal monthly meeting 
Monday, March 19, in the conservatory. 
Group adviser is Pierce A. Getz, assistant 
professor of organ. 

The first order of business was a discus- 
sion of future programs and meetings led 
by Mr. Getz. Following this the group 
selected its 1962-63 officers: Kathleen 
Bauernfeind, president; Barbara Shupp, 
vice-president; Betsy Lorenz, secretary- 
treasurer; and William Luce, faculty- 
student council representative. 

This group is open to any college stu- 
dent who is interested in the problems and 
responsibilities of the church organist. The 
meetings will also concern certain field 
trips, recitals, and studies in various facets 
of organ construction. Any interested stu- 
dent should consult an officer or Mr. Getz 
as to time and place of the next meeting.

event from area colleges as well as a Mor- 
mon group from Virginia. The week- 
end is designed to promote closer under- 
standing and friendship between races and 
countries. The weekend will begin with an 
informal opening service and a short 
drama. At 7 p.m. Dean Carl Y. Ehrhart 
will lead a discussion on the theme, 'Two 
Way Diplomacy — you show us your way 
and we'll show you ours." Sunday morn- 
ing, an informal service will be held with 
Dr. Magee as speaker. With the traditional 
"Cultural Exchange" hour and a farewell 
service. Return to campus will be at 2:30 

All students are invited to attend for 
either the whole weekend or a part of it. 
This weekend is strictly informal and de- 
signed for fun and friendship. 

Male Siblings Tetragon 
Excites Record Crowd 

A record crowd jammed Lynch Me- 
morial Gym to hear the Brothers Four 
Friday night. These young men proved 
themselves showmen as well as singers as 
they frolicked through their numbers. 
Mixing comedy with classic folk songs, 
they completely won the audience which 
brought them back for three encores. 

Standouts of the evening were the take- 
off on rock'n'roll, complete with stomps, 
pivoting pelvises, and a garble of sound 
effects, gee-ups, war whoops, and oau- 
w-w-ws; a parody of San Miguel; "to the 
stables, Manuel, there is work piling up"; 
the plaintive ballad, Greensleeves given a 
new twist: "Green Stamps were all she 
gave!" and the song with which they rose 
to fame, Greenfields, made more effective 
with dramatic lighting. 

Guitars strummed fast and fancy and 
well-blended voices were combined in 
numbers such as Rock Island Line, Mid- 
night Special, Abilene, and the Drillers' 

The pace was slowed and quieted with 
renditions of St. James' Infirmary, Green 
Leaves of Summer, Rolling Home, the 
theme from "Lafayette," and an unidenti- 
fied song from the Civil War. 

Their antics between numbers kept the 
show moving rapidly and the comments 
made during the songs were witty and 

The fatigue began to show in their voices 
by the end of the show, yet their last 
number was done with as much enthusi- 
asm as their first. Applause reluctantly 
diminished as the Brothers left the stage 
after the last encore. (JD)

The Truth 
About May Day 

From the office of the dean of the college come statistics revealing 
this astounding fact; more classes are missed by students because of May 
Day practices than because of all the college's athletic programs combined 
throughout the entire year! 

In 1959-60, students missed 347 class hours and 24 lab hours in 
order to practice for May Day. Last year 396 class hours and 23 lab 
hours were foregone for this reason. Appalling as this is, even worse is 
the fact that many more hours are required of students' time during the 
evenings and other out-of-class hours. During the several weeks preced- 
ing May Day at least ten evening hours per week are devoted to practice. 
Besides this, gowns and costumes must be chosen and fitted, all of which 
takes time. 

May Day practices come at the lime of year when term papers are 
due and tests are numerous, These rehearsals take up valuable study 
time when it is needed most; they rob students of strategic class and lab 

The time is long overdue for us to take a serious look at our tradi- 
tional spring rites and assess their value. Is May Day really worth all 
this lost class time? Surely if a championship football team can be 
trained outside of class hours, a May Day program could be organized 
with even less time and effort. If not, then we should consider eliminat- 
ing the holiday as entirely too unwieldy and wasteful. 

The time element is just another of many reasons why May Day 
has been under castigation by La Vie editors in the past and by others 
on campus who feel that the holiday should be either modified or abolish- 
ed. Suggestions have been forwarded for the upgrading of the festivity. 
This could be successfully done by (1) eliminating the Maypole dance, 
an absurdity the campus should be ashamed to present, and (2) combining 
the spring music festival, the Wig and Buckle presentation, an art exhibit 
and perhaps a scheduled college sports event into May Day Weekend, If 
dances and stunts are included with some of the music to give more stu- 
dents a chance to participate, routines should be kept simple and mean- 
ingful and be so arranged as to demand a minimum of rehearsal. Such 
a program would be much more edifying than the present frivolities. 

Is there any hope for the near future? Students who will be having 
charge of various May Day events in the next few years should make 
efforts to try to redeem the holiday from the trite, meaningless frolic it 
has been for so many years. (JMK) 

In This Corner, 
Wearing Black 

Madison Square Garden was the scene of basic brutality on March 
24 of this year. Welterweight Champion Benny ("Kid") Paret was beaten 
unconscious in the twelfth-round Championship Fight by challenger Emile 
Griffith. The following day he underwent an operation to relieve the 
pressure on his damaged brain. Today "Kid" Paret is dead. 

Scandal resulted — too late as usual. An investigation of the fight 
was begun. The American press stirred up anger and controversy, and 
a bill to ban boxing was introduced into the New York State Legislature. 
What was the result of this scandal? Nothing. Boxing will survive again 
as it has survived so many years of scandals in the past. 

"Kid" Paret is not the first man to die from injuries suffered in a 
boxing ring. In past years, when padded gloves were not used, the bare- 
knuckled professional fighters were far more savage than they are today. 
They usually fought until one of them dropped, unconscious, or was so 
badly beaten that he was unable to continue. 

Going back even further in the history of boxing, we find that in 
ancient Rome there were no padded gloves. Instead, the slaves wore the 
original brass knuckles. The winner of a Roman prize fight was auto- 
matic and undisputed; he was simply the survivor. The object of his 
match was to kill the other man. 

Has our civilization advanced to any great extent? Are we any less 
brutal today? No, the savageries of boxing go on. The deaths and in- 
juries stand as reason enough to raise a question mark over why it should 
be allowed to continue. 

In an average year perhaps a dozen fighters die from injuries inflicted 
in the prize ring. Many more leave the ring with seriously damaged 
brains or pennanent physical handicaps. 

There is a difference between boxing and other sports in which an 
occasional injury or death may result. The basic purpose of boxing is 
to inflict physical punishment on the opponent. The goal is to knock 
him unconscious. 

Is boxing a sport? Consider the manly art of self-defense. How 
many fans appreciate a good boxing match? Their cheers are for the 
tighter who sends the other man reeling or crumpling to the canvas. The 
mass of spectators exult in the violence of the prizefight ring. 

Crookedness and corruption also have a way of sneaking into the 
fight. Has the "sport" cleaned out its racketeers and gamblers? 

In itself, Paret's death is no reason to eliminate professional boxing. 
But, since society must share in the guilt of allowing men to batter each 
other in the name of "sport " a reappraisal of boxing should be under- 
taken. It is very questionable whether this "sport" is worth the lasting in- 
jury and corrupt influences which it so often brings, to say nothing of the 
occasional deaths that occur. (JKR) 


Contemporary Scene 

WUh Tom J. Holmes 

It now seems as though the best way 
to secure a luxurious, all expense vaca- 
tion in the Caribbean is to wash ashore 
somewhere along Cuba. 

Recent happenings at that Senate in- 
vestigation of military censorship prompt 
me to think there is at least one journalist 
who wishes that Edwin Walker would 
have been more than muzzled. 

Also of interest is that during his testi- 
mony, ex-Gen. Walker questioned the 
loyalty of such men as Dean Rusk and 
Walt W. Rostow, head of the State De- 
partment's Policy Planning Council Both 
Mr. Rusk and Mr. Rostow are required 
reading in several courses at Valley. 

1 suppose Mr. Walker would extend 
his charge of following "an unwritten 
policy of collaboration and collusion with 
the international Communist conspiracy" 
to include several LV professors. 

There I was, see, dutifully writing my 
column, when suddenly out on the lawn 
there arose a wailing sound that caused 
chills in my bowels. I sprang from my 
chair, ran to the window and behold, the 
sky was ablaze with this red glow. Fire, 
1 thought, but as I looked closer, all I 
could see was somebody burning leaves in 
back of the library. Could this be it? 

So, like all the other thrill-seekers, I 
tore down to this 'fire" to see what would 
happen. Sure enough, no sooner was 1 
there then the Annville fire crew arrived 
on the scene with their little red wagons. 
And then it was all over. 

I guess LV's custodians will just have 
to find some other way to get rid of the

Speaking of I.S. 15-30 (we were awhile

Liberal Papers (watch for it on campus 
next year). This is a collection of intelli- 
gent articles written by distinguished 
scholars dealing with their particular fields 
of study. I suppose this explains why 
certain Republican leaders are against it. 

David Riesman, writing in the Wash- 
ington Post t wonders "if the Republican 
Party is so bankrupt that it can find noth-

With Dr. Love in Europe this semester

campus next year I can't help wonder-

the rest of us don't? 

Good day!

Art thou discouraged with any aspect

Candles For St. Elmo ? 

Last week, in the State Prison at Bellefonte, Elmo Smith died in 
the electric chair. The execution is over, and his body has been buried, 
but, as far as some self-appointed crusaders are concerned } his cause goes 
marching on, Yes, before you can say "Caryl Chessman," editorials will 
be written, pleading for the abolishment of that foul evil, capital punish- 
ment, and asking for prayers to be offered, asking forgiveness from the 
latest "martyr," St. Elmo of Norristown. 

Perhaps this editorial is too harsh in its iconoclasm, but it is time 
that someone called attention to the fact that Smith and his great brother- 
hood of the barbecued were not meek lambs who fell prey to cruel, 
judicial butchers. Smith was a cold-blooded criminal who brutally at- 
tacked and murdered a fourteen-year old girl. He was tried and sentenced 
according to due process of law. Those who feel that his death was un- 
just may point out the fact that capital punishment does nothing to de- 
crease the crime rate, but, if one is looking for statistics, it is also a fact 
that many sex offenders who are released from prison and supposedly 
rehabilitated give a repeat performance of their perverted crimes. (Tit is 
was true in the case of Chessman, as well as many others.) Of course, 
this all goes back to the need of more effective rehabilitation programs 
in our prisons. 

Naturally, it is easy to be objective and mourn the cruel and unjust 
death of a rapist and murderer. This is a little too easy, actually, since 
we are completely detached from the situation. Or are we? How did 
you feel a few weeks ago when a prowler was strolling about the grounds 
of our own campus? Yet, today you can sit in the snack bar and talk 
about mercy and the ineffectually of capital punishment. You are talk- 
ing to your friends. But could you honestly have the same blase attitude 
when confronted by the grief- stricken family of one of these "martyr's" 

victims? (EHN) *

What's Good About 
Student Teaching ? 

by Betsy Miller 

A large number of the students on this campus either are taking or 
are planning to take student teaching. To give the future student teachers 
and those who never will take part in this program some idea of what it 
is like, La Vie Inquires asked some of the present student teachers what 
they thought of the program. The students were asked how they liked 
their teaching and what they specifically liked or disliked about it, 

Kay Hoffer: 

wouldn't want to 
leave here to start 
teaching without 
this experience. The 
advantage in my 
case is that t get 
to work with stu- 
dents of various 
grade levels, and 
learn to adjust to 
them. When you MUkr 
leave, you know what to expect from 
teaching. A disadvantage is that you're 
not only a teacher but also a student, and 
in my particular case, a member of several 
required organizations, and you can't spend 
your time just on teaching. 

Jeanne Vowlen "I like the students and 
the cooperative teacher, and I'd like 
everything if we didn't have the tension 
of the unexpected." 

Larry Cisney: "It's great! I am thor- 
oughly enjoying the many teaching ex- 
periences which I am having at M. S. 
Hershey Junior-Senior High School. How- 
ever, I greatly regret the fact that I can- 
not spend more time on this important 
aspect of my education experience at 
I Lebanon Valley. I feel that the present 
secondary student teachers are at a tre- 

mendous disadvantage under the present 
student teaching program at LV. I 
strongly believe that an individual can- 
not receive adequate preparation for en- 
tering the teaching profession by simply 
participating in a semester of half-day 
teaching experiences. I would be the first 
to advocate that Lebanon Valley abandon 
its present secondary student teaching pro- 
gram which will provide future LVC stu- 
dent teachers with at least one complete 
semester of full-time teaching experiences. 
In spite of the shortcomings of the present 
student-teaching program, 1 must say in 
all sincerity that it is continually provid- 
ing me with invaluable experiences," 

Brenda Brown: "I like it very much but 
I feel that a student teacher shouldn't be 
required to have classes at the college. 
Your days are too broken up and you 
don't get a full picture of teaching." 

Sandy Stctler: "I like it very much. I 
find that I am learning a lot from the 
students. The children are a great chal- 
lenge. It takes a lot of preparation but 
it is well worth it to see their reactions 
to your ideas. I'm glad T chose teaching 
as a profession." 

Pat Wise: "It's a wonderful experience

Dutch Flier 

By Chip Burkhardt 

The Lebanon Valley nine has jumped off to a good start with home 
victories over Gettysburg (7-4) and Franklin and Marshall (15-3). 

The starters for the first two contests have been senior Brooks 
Slalcher behind the plate, frosh Bob Zweitzig at first, sophomores Ted 
Bonsall and Chuck Ebersole at second and third, and in the outfield, 
junior John Yajko and frosh Barry Yocom and Carvel Mowery. Doing 
the pitching job in both contests was Bob Stull. 


Coach Don Grider's net men have had it rough thus far, dropping 
decisions to Franklin and Marshall {5 1 A-\ 1 A) and Rider (7-2), but it's 
a long season and the squad hopes to take the majority of the remaining 
eleven games. 

Starters in the first two tilts have been seniors (captain) Dick Blair 
and Hakim Lys in positions six and two, juniors Dennis PhtUippy and 
Jay Kreider at third and fifth positions and Bob Andreozzi, participating 
in second doubles. Sophomores are Larry Stein at number one and 
Charles Burkhardt at four. Freshmen Glenn MacGregor and Bill Checket 
round out the team and play at third doubles. 


The cindcrmen also have dropped their first two encounters of the 
season; one to Albright and the other to Dickinson, 

Getting firsts and seconds in the Albright loss were Gene Stambach, 
a second in the high jump, Dave Mahler and John Kobylarz, a first and 
a second in the pole vault, John Witter, a second in the discus, Jim Brom- 
mer, two firsts in the mile and two mile events, Terry Herr, a second in 
the 100 yard dash and 120 yard high hurdles plus a first in the 220 yard 
low hurdles, Dave Rabenold, a second in the 880, and Roger Ward, a 
second in the 220 yard dash. 

Chemistry Professors 
Convene In Carlisle 

The thirteenth annual meeting of the 
Pennsylvania Association of College 
Chemistry Teachers was held at Carlisle, 
Pennsylvania, on March 30 and 31 ia 
connection with the annual Joseph Priest- 
ley celebration at Dickinson College. 

Approximately 125 members attended 
the meeting, which featured the reading 
of 14 research papers and the exchange 
of ideas of teaching techniques. Profes- 
sor H. A. Neidig of Lebanon Valley 
College presented a paper entitled "Lab- 
oratory Investigations." 

On Friday night the chemistry teachers 
joined with Dickinson College in honoring 
one of America's leading scientists, Robert 
Woodward of Harvard, who received 
Dickinson's Priestley Memorial Award for 
service to mankind through organic chem- 

The award was $1,000 and a portrait 
medallion of Priestley, discoverer of oxy- 
gen. Dr. Woodward was honored for his 
synthesis of chlorophyll and other com- 
plex life molecules important to medicine 
and industry. 

On display was the double burning glass 
with which the discovery of oxygen is as- 
sociated and other scientific equipment 
once owned and used by Priestley. After 
Priestley's death in 1804 Dickinson ac- 
quired the equipment from his son for less 
than $500. It is now regarded as price-

LVC Racquet Squad 
Drops First Matches 

The Dutchmen racquet squad got off to 
a rocky start this season as it dropped its 
first two matches. 

The first match last Monday was a 
5V2-lVi loss at the hands of the Diplomats 
from Franklin and Marshall. The other 
setback was a 7-2 decision at Rider Col- 
lege in Trenton, New Jersey. 

F & M look all the single matches in 
the first contest with the exception of the 
number six spot, which was declared no 
contest as darkness set in. 

In doubles LV picked up its lVi points 
with a victory from Glenn MacGrcgoi 
and Bill Checket at third doubles and a 
halved match at first doubles. The sec- 
ond doubles was curtailed because of

Dr. Bissinger Reviews 
Operations Research 

Dr. B. H. Bissinger, chairman of the 
division of science and the department of 
mathematics at Lebanon Valley College, 
delivered an address last April before the 
Supervisors' Conference of the Naval 
Supervisors' Association in Mechanics burg, 
Pa. His speech covered "Operations Re- 
search-Boss of the Sciences." Last De- 
cember Dr. Bissinger's address was print- 
ed in booklet form. 

Operational research in military and 
industrial fields since World War II has 
become a rapidly growing aid to manage- 
ment. The operations researcher is to 
supply top management with sufficient 
scientific evolution of its operations to 
help them make decisions. 

Executives will not be replaced by op- 
erational research, but they can be greatly 
aided by it. They no longer have to rely 
on the costly trial-and-error methods 
which can spell failure in some industries. 

The cornerstone of an operations re- 
search attack lies in the consideration of 
a problem in terms of its relationship to 
an entire operation. This requires the 
study of additional operationally-related 
problems. This perspective has today re- 
sulted in an operational research team 
which possibly has as one of its members 
a psychologist who will add variables like 
motivation and morale to the factors un- 
der consideration. 

In operational research all pertinent 
aspects of the operation are considered. 

The division of social sciences ex- 
presses its thanks to the students and 
to others who assisted and supported 
the Social Sciences Day program at 
LVC on Saturday, March 24.

Director, division

because it gets the future teacher in the 
situation which he will face when he en- 
ters the teaching profession. However, 1 
feel that the elementary student teachers, 
have a much better setup than the second- 
ary student teachers because they have a 
chance to become integrated into all the 
activities of the school during the time 
they are there. If the secondary student 
teachers are to receive the same oppor- 
tunity, they should be relieved of taking 
college courses at the same time they are 
practice teaching. I think student teach- 
ing takes up a worth while twelve weeks 
— for the students as well as teachers." 

Sylvia Bucher: "For preparation in the 
teaching field, it is probably one of the 
most valuable programs the college offers. 
I am enjoying my experience in the teach- 
ing field; the inevitable lack of long-range 
programming for the class is the only 
frustrating thing about the program." 

Dunn Zimmerman: "As a ministerial 
student I have received much enjoyment 
and enlightenment about young people's 
behavior from this program. I do be- 
lieve, however, that if the time element 
could be rearranged, such as a full day of 
teaching instead of half, I and the students 
would have benefited to a much higher 
degree. I also believe that secondary edu- 
cation students are ineffectively rehearsed 
in the art of teaching because of the load 
of their major courses."

Dr. Frank Lau bach 
Speaks In Chapel 

Dr. Frank C. Laubach, international literacy leader, delivered the 
Religion and Life lecture for this semester Tuesday in chapel. 
Laubach, noted for bis "Each One — 

Iota Kappa Presents 
Harrisburg Program 


Teach One" program, began his career 
as a missionary in the Philippine Islands 
from 1915 to 1919. Later he was dean 
of Union College, Manila, and began 
directing the Maranow Folk Schools in 
the Philippines. Here he developed and 
extended the "Each One Teach One" 
technique to serve about 20 Philippine 

For twenty-five years this "Apostle to 
the Illiterate 11 has traveled in many dif- 
ferent countries and has worked with 
literary projects for agencies such as 
UNESCO. He has helped to develop 
teaching primers in 275 languages and 
dialects to enable adults in over 101 
countries to read their own language. Dr. 
Laubach is the author of many books, 
the latest of which is Wise Man. 

Dr. Laubach has expressed concern 
about the Communists' activities among 
the illiterate peoples of the world. He 
is dismayed about the rapid rate of con- 
version to Communism among these peo- 
ples, who find the Communist promises 
of education and progress attractive. This, 
coupled with the intense Communist 
"missionary" activity to educate the peo- 
ple into an anti-capitalist orientation, 
poses a serious challenge to the West but 
he feels it should not be faced with fear. 
"I am not afraid of the Communists," 
says Dr. Laubach. "I'm afraid of some 
Americans who have neither fire nor vi- 
sion," He feels that we can wrest the 
world from Communism if we can stir 
up an effort to "save the world with love 
in action." 

Tuesday's speaker is a native of Ben- 
ton, Pennsylvania. He has received de- 
grees from Bloomsburg State Normal 
School, Princeton University, Union Theo- 
logical Seminary and Columbia Universi- 
ty, and holds honorary degrees from six 
other colleges.

Faculty At Albright 
Discuss Fraternities 

Just as listening to and noting the 
thoughts of others helps us to formulate 
our own opinions, so scanning current 
events and trends at other colleges helps 
LVC gain insight to its own problems. 

Considering the topic of student gov- 
ernment, Wilson College reports that col- 
leges from Mount Holyoke to Columbia 
University to the University of Pennsyl- 
vania are "agitating for re-evaluation and 
reform in student government." 

On the subject of fraternities and soro- 
rities, Albright College recently conducted 
a questionnaire-type survey of faculty 
opinions, on the subject. Twenty-six 
raculty members answered these questions: 

*T. Do you thin k the social fraternities 
and sororities at Albright make a valuable 
contribution to campus life? 

Fifteen answered yes to this question, 
seven — no, three — no comment and one — 
mixed response. 

2. Do you think the students' involve- 
ment in social fraternities and sororities 
throughout the year presents a serious 
hindrance to their academic work? 

Eight — yes, fourteen — no, three — no 
comment, one — mixed reaction. 

3. Do you think ihe pledging programs 
interfere too greatly with academic work? 

Sixteen — yes, eight — no, two — no com- 

4. Do you think it would be advan- 
tageous for any of the local fraternities to 
affiliate with national fraternities if the 
opportunity should present itself? 

Six — yes, eighteen — no, two — no com- 

5. Do you think Albright needs another

Fashions For Spring 
Forecast Light Colors 

By Nan Bintliff 

Robert L. Green, fashion director of 
i J LAYBOY Magazine, forecasts the "tall 
jook" for men's clothes this spring and 
summer. In a recent article he predicted 
a trend toward the nautical motif in water- 
iepellent poplins for sportswear with new 
style treatment of the classic red, white 
and blue. Also popular will be the match- 
ing cardigan and shirt set, the stitched 
"workshirt," the summer "shir ting- weight" 
sweater, and the sport shirt cut along the 
lines of the cardigan sweater or sport coat. 

Colors will have a white, lighter ap- 
pearance, cooling down last year's "hot" 
shades and giving a clean, fresh, cool look 
for summertime. Trends will lean to- 
ward "'stretch" fabrics, hooded jackets, 
shorter boxer type swim wear, and draw 
string bottoms on slicker cloths. 

With the increase in straw hats, many 
men who disdain dress hats will find the 
right thing for mem in a beach or fun hat. 
Ascots are back, too, for use as a bold 
color accent or in subtle shades to tone 
down a bright jacket or sweater. 

The latest hint is to balance one's ward- 
robe with a dark and subdued jacket 
(dusky blue is the favorite). The double 
breasted coat with a rounded front and 
button-off back belt is swinging in in strong 
bold plaids and mild stripes. The hand- 
kerchief with the straight even line is 
definitely out. A casual or "puff fold" is 

Chapel Choir Presents 

The Chapel Choir, under the direction 
of Pierce Getz, presented a Lenten musi- 
cal program in the regular chapel service, 
Tuesday, April 3. 

The following anthems were presented, 
Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring by Bach; 
Road to the Lamb by Candlyn; None 
Other Lamb by Roff ; Richard de Castre's 
Prayer to Jesus by Terry; Oh! What Sor- 
row by d'Astorga; Thou Goest to Jeru- 
salem by Franck; Victim Divine, Thy 
Grace We Claim by Hutchings. 

The same program was then presented 
on April 5, when the Chapel Choir travel- 
ed to Albright College, Reading. The 
choir was assisted by a string quartet.

duction, now in the rehearsal stages. 


By Dave Grove and Curt Miller 

The most general comment we can 
make concerning the Band Concert of the 
evening of April 5 is that it was very 
good. The band as a whole seemed well 
able to enter into the spirit of the music 
they played and to communicate this 
spirit very well. 

It did come as rather a surprise to hear 
several "old favorites" (not all of them so 
very old) in transcriptions for band. The 
first movement of Grieg's Concerto in A 
minor (with Bonnie Fix Keller as the com- 
petent piano soloist), excerpts from Men- 
otti's Sebastian ballet, and the Toccata and 
Fugue in D minor of Bach were all pre- 
sented in this manner. 

Of the three works just mentioned, it is 
highly probable that the Bach is the most 
difficult to effectively transcribe for band 
(or anything else, for that matter). The 
transcription used was Dr. Thurmond's 
own, and shed some interesting light on 
the problems of transcribing a highly com- 
plex fugue for band. In general, the 
various voices in the fugue were fairly 
clear and distinct, and the fugue was not 
too hard to follow in its new guise. Both 
the toccata and the fugue did seem to 
retain much of the intensity of motion 
and the majesty that are typical of many 
of Bach's finest works (although one is 
tempted to wonder just what Bach would 
have thought of the sound of a xylophone 
in this particular work). 

The Symphony in B flat for Concert 
Band of Paul Hindemith was the largest 
and most diffiuclt work on the program 
and was well-performed. The band man- 
aged to bring out much of the romanticism 
inherent in the music and the work 
proved to be highly enjoyable (if one is 
not bothered by a little dissonance). 

The excellent guest euphonium soloist, 
Mr. Harold T. Brasch, played the solo in 
the "Dance of the Swans" (transcribed for 
band) from Tschaikovsky's Swan Lake 
ballet. He then played two encores, the 
latter of which, Variation on "The Carni- 
val a} Venice" (played unaccompanied), 
proved to be an overwhelming display of 
virtuosity and purity of tone. We are 
moved to remark that we would scarcely 
have expected the euphonium to be cap- 
able of such versatility. Certainly Mr. 
Brasch's presence was a more-than-wel- 
comc addition to this very pleasant con- 

Carol Ann Smith Is 
Kalo's 'Sweetheart' 

Carol Ann Smith, a senior elementary 
education major, has been chosen by Kap- 
pa Lambda Sigma as their April "Sweet-

Cast To Stage 'Angel' 
Next Saturday, Monday 

Wig and Buckle's spring production, "Look Homeward, Angel," 
will be presented on May 12 and 14. The eighteen-member cast has 
been practicing almost nightly in hopes of making this one of Wig and 
Buckle's biggest dramatic achievements. The play calls for some highly 
intensified acting to fully portray many character roles. 
The play centers around Eugene Gant, 

Thomas Wolfe's autobiographical prota 
gonist, and his struggle to break away 
from his family, a strange clan that loves 
and hates each other strongly. His father, 
W. O. Gant, is a stone-cutter who lives 
in an alcoholic dream world, lamenting 
the "red waste of years," and finds little 
consolation from Eliza Gant, his wife, a 
penny-pinching shrew, constantly remind- 
ing her family of "the value of a dollar." 
Her greed is forcing her family to live in 
the Dixieland Boarding House, a huge 
barn-like building that in many ways 
symbolizes all that from which Eugene 
wants to escape. He is encouraged by 
his brother, Ben, a thirty-year old, self- 
styled failure who dreams of flying as a 
fighting pilot, but, because of poor health, 
must content himself with a mediocre job 
on a small paper. Ben's only solace is 
Fatty Pert, one of the boarders, a sym- 
pathetic grass widow who is often the 
target for Eliza's malicious resent. The 
boarders include: Mrs. Clatt, a deaf, gos- 
sipping old woman; her son, Jake, boorish 
and insensitive; Mr. Farrel, a retired danc- 
ing master, who is pursued by Miss 
Brown, a young woman of rather ques- 
tionable character; Florry Marple, a some- 
what neurotic, frustrated type who is in- 
terested in Jake. Things become com- 
plicated when Laura James, a new board- 
er, falls in love with Gene. Ben's death 
is the catalyst that causes the final break 
between Gene and his mother. 

Lester Berenbroick Gives 
Organ-Choral Lecture 

The ninth annual Organ-Choral Lec- 
tureship was presented by the department 
of music on Saturday, April 28, in Engle 
Hall. Pierce A. Getz, assistant professor 
of organ, was in charge of the program 
that was given to assist pastors, organists 
and choir directors in improving the 
quality of music for worship. Lester W. 
Berenbroick, Choral Director and Organ- 
ist of Drew University, made his second 
appearance in four years as guest lec- 

Berenbroick held a session on reading 
anthems, conducted a demonstration of 
music for the small organ and partici- 
pated in a panel discussion on the musical 
and organizational problems of music in 
the church. He also presented a discus- 
sion on solos for use in the church as- 
sisted by Peggy Zimmerman, soprano; 
Sylvia Bucher, alto; Jack Turner, tenor 
and Eugene Miller, baritone. 

A graduate of the Juilliard School of 
Music, Mr. Berenbroick is an associate of 
the American Guild of Organists and is 
now organist and choir director of the 
Presbyterian Church in Madison, New

Artist Series Launches 
New Subscription Drive 

Lebanon Valley College has begun to 
prepare for the second annual Artist Ser- 
ies by launching a subscription campaign 
for the 1962-63 season. Admission to the 
three programs is by a season ticket pur- 
chased during the subscription period now 
in progress. The cost for regular sub- 
scribers is $5.00 and $7.50 for patrons. 
Patron subscribers will be admitted to the 
receptions for the visiting artists immedi- 
ately following each performance. 

The series will begin on November 12 
with a lecture by Dr. K. C. Wu. Ameri- 
can educated, Dr. Wu is a former gover- 
nor of Formosa. He has been acknowl- 
edged as "the most effective spokesman 
of the Chinese Nationalist Government." 

On February 18, the Antient Concerts 
Quintet will present a concert. This 
Quintet originated in Pittsburgh as a group 
of musicians with a mutual interest in 
baroque music. They perform on prede- 
cessors of modern stringed and reed in-

John Zola Memorial 
Is Microfilm Projector 

Students have contributed more than 
$300 to the John Zola Memorial Fund. A 
microfilm machine, to be purchased with 
this money, is on order and will be placed 
in the library. A plaque commemorating 
John, the LVC pre-medical student who 
died as result of football injuries, will ap- 
pear on the equipment. 

The Faculty-Student Council voted to 
purchase the machine after considering 
recommendations and suggestions com- 
piled by Judy Nichols and Ed Morgan, 
chairmen of the Zola Fund Committee.

Dilworth Says Transition 
Is Key State Issue 

by Tom J. Holmes 

In what appears to be a bid to make Pennsylvania politics a live 
campus issue, Richardson S. Dilworth, leading contender for the Demo- 
cratic gubernatorial nomination, continued his sweep of leading Pennsyl- 
vania colleges by appearing at Lebanon Valley. Speaking Wednesday 
afternoon in the audio-visual room of the library, the former mayor of 
Philadelphia cited the need for a satisfactory transition into the technology 
of the present age as the leading state issue. 
To an audience of approximately 60 

students Dilworth noted that the old in- 
dustries are no longer capable of giving 
the full employment they once were and 
that the state must turn to the new elec- 
tronic and nuclear industries to take up 
the slack. 

He placed the responsibility for not 
meeting this post-World War II transi- 
tion on the Republican Administration 
then in power. 

La Vie Interview 

Prior to this meeting, Dilworth told La 
Vie in an exclusive interview that the pur- 
pose of his visits to colleges and coun- 
ties was to lay the groundwork for his 
later campaigning. With only token op- 
position facing him in the May Primary, 
Dilworth is taking an opportunity to meet 
with Democratic leaders, labor and busi- 
ness heads, and the press in order to dis- 

cuss the issues. It is his intention to visit 
every county in the state before May 15. 
By not having a pre-primary fight, he can 
begin right away to lay the foundation of 
a strong campaign, which is what he is 
endeavoring to do. 

Dilworth is keenly aware of the intense 
political interest to be found on the col- 
lege campus and is making a notable ef- 
fort to talk with students in all 67 coun- 

He also feels strongly the need for in- 
creased educational facilities, particularily 
in the area of the community junior col- 
lege. These would be two year colleges 
set up by the local community when and 
where they decided it to be feasible. The 
school would be financed partly by the 
state and partly by the community with 
additional aid coming from tuition and

We Weren't All 
"On The Beach" 

When spring enters the colleges and universities hysteria begins to 
creep across the campuses. Final examinations are in the near future 
and tensions begin to mount. The stifling competitive atmospheres in 
our colleges today, where an ever-increasing emphasis is placed on 
grades, leads to this psychological tendency. The spring and Easter va- 
cations that are given to the students at this time of year are one of the 
best ways to remedy this situation. But, to many students the strain that 
they have been under must erupt in some form and the results are the 
Daytona Beaches and Fort Lauderdales. 

Spring vacations are now over for college students and this year, as 
last, the collegians managed to leave their mark on society. Again 
the "youth of America" has shocked the world. They had their pictures 
printed in magazines and newspapers and the articles and headlines they 
instigated have appeared over the globe. Adults were horrified after 
reading these reports and cringed after seeing the television programs 
that showed the actions of the "youth of America" and gave them the 
opportunity to relay their ideas to the American public. 

This year the meeting place was Daytona Beach, Florida. About 15,- 
000 students invaded this resort community over the Easter vacation. 
They went with the purpose of having a good time and/or "making out." 
They sunned and twisted on the beach during the day and held parties 
and went to bars at night. Time magazine estimated that the average 
daily beer consumption was three cans per girl and nine per boy. What 
is the reason for this lack of morals and lack of inhibitions? In Where 
the Boys Are by Glendon Swarthout (a book that was largely responsible 
for the mass invasion of Fort Lauderdale during last year's spring vaca- 
tion) two college students are discussing this problem. "Sex isn't a matter 
of morals any more . . . it's part of personal relations . . . It's the pleasant, 
friendly thing to do . . . like shaking hands or making sure you catch the 
other person's name when you're introduced. We have to get along with 
people, there's nothing more important today. In what shape would we 
be if everyone went around rejecting each other?" This, apparently, was 
the attitude of the students at Daytona. 

But, are these students the example of the "youth of America?" 
What about the thousands of collegians who did not go to the beaches 
in Florida for their Easter vacation? 

The students that went home for the holiday are never heard about. 
They do not receive articles, headlines and pictures in our magazines 
and newspapers. Yet, they are as exemplary of our youth as the masses in 
Florida. From them will come our future politicians, teachers and busi- 
ness leaders. The future of our nation lies in their hands also. 

America glories in the spectacular and the unusual. Perhaps this 
is the explanation for the exploitation of the crimes of our juvenile delin- 
quents and the activities of our college students. No one can doubt that 
the activities in Daytona Beach this Easter were spectacular. But, they 
were not a just and fair representation of our "American youth." (JKR) 

Shall We Fraternize? 

Opinion Poll Results 

Forty-three students out of the 700 who receive La Vie filled out the 
Student Opinion Poll forms concerning the new college policy of con- 
doning housed selective fraternal organizations such as the Knights of the 
Valley. Thirty-two responded affirmatively to both of the questions ("Do 
you feel that the Knights of the Valley fraternal experiment has been 
beneficial to the campus as a whole?" and "Would you like to see more 
such organizations on campus?"). Ten answered in the negative; one 
student answered no to the first, yes to the second. 

The poll, because of poor response, proves nothing except student 
apathy. Only 6% of the students were concerned enough, for or against 
this revolutionary policy, to bother answering. 

It is nothing new in the world for an unthinking public to sit back 
and watch some of their peers set themselves up as an exclusive elite on 
the basis of prestige, money, personality or other arbitrary standards, none 
of which is basic democratic human worth. There is, of course, no re- 
strictions placed upon the formation of elites, except that a titled nobility 
is forbidden by the Constitution. There is also no law against refusing 
to speak with a factory worker, or refusing to sit beside a Negro. But any- 
one who has a democratic sense of values will deplore such snobbery. 

The amazing thing is, that many people never bother to assert their 
self-respect when they find themselves snubbed; they may even display 
envy or admiration of those who have managed to convince the public 
that they deserve special privileges. Instead of taking self-appointed ex- 
clusiveness as a presumption on the part of the elite, the public submits 
with insipid hero-worship. 

We submit that the lethargic, submissive mentality, unconcerned 
about its rights or the policies by which its authorities operate, is a men- 
tality dangerous to itself. Its danger on the college level and even on the 
conventional adult social level may be inconsequential enough. But this 
mentality, under the spell of a powerful enough "elite," has actually con- 
doned excesses like the caste system, racism, and in its most ruthless 
extreme, Nazism. 

It is a mentality which should be dispelled, not encouraged, by col- 
lege life. (JMK) 


By Dave Grove 

Those who were unable to attend the 
recital given by Miss Janiece Patterson 
Epke as the last offering of the 1961-1962 
LVC Artist Series were deprived of per- 
haps the most thoroughly satisfying num- 
ber of this series. 

Miss Epke, a soprano, sang a varied 
program in five languages (Italian, Ger- 
man, French, English, and Spanish), and 
sang it gloriously. Her voice was rich 
and colorful, and her technique impecca- 
ble. It was her amazing ability to com- 
municate the exact emotional significance 
of every note she sang, though, that made 
the program as outstanding as it was. 

Of the entire program, perhaps the 
three selections from the Frauenliebe und 
Leben of Schumann and To This We've 
Come, from Menotti's opera The Consul 
were the most noteworthily performed. 

The three songs from the Frauenliebe 
depict, in extremely compact form, the 
emotional metamorphosis of a young girl 
from the time she sees and falls in love 
with a man until she is asked to marry 
him. Miss Epke went from lovesickness 
to ecstasy to the disbelieving joy of the 
last song with a sympathy and communi- 
cativeness that almost defies description. 

The music from The Consul, on the 
other hand, depicts despair, and Miss 
Epke's voice was the voice of despair. To 
say that her performance was moving 
would be to grossly understate the matter. 

(It should be said here that the Artist 
Series committee deserves a word of con- 
gratulation for finding and bringing to 
us the programs they have presented this 
year. We may hope for the continued 
success of this venture.)

La Vie Inquires 

Collegians Evaluate 
Student Government 

By Betsy Miller 

Recently La Vie Inquires was asked by one of the presidents of the 
student governing bodies to determine how the students feel about these 
organizations. The opinions below reflect some of the feeling on this 
question. It is not entirely a fair representation of student opinion as a 
whole since many of those asked who had no criticism refused to com- 
ment because they felt that such opinions were not important or interest-

private grants. 

As to aid to education in general, it is 
Dilworth's view that the state can best 
help in the field of scholarships, etc. He 
also noted that he feels President Ken- 
nedy's program of aid to education is cor- 

In reference to a question on the split 
in the Philadelphia Republican Party, Dil- 
worth replied that it was akin to "splitting 

The interview was brightened by the 
presence of Mrs. Dilworth who reported 
that, while it was not a new experience, 
she nevertheless enjoyed very much 
traveling with her husband. 

Question And Answer Session 

In a question and answer session fol- 
lowing his talk in the A-V Room, Dil- 
worth proved to be very capable at an- 
swering key questions and greatly impress- 
ed those present by his straight-forward 
manner and directness on important is- 

Throughout his replies he seemed to be 
stressing two points — the advantages of 
having a Democratic Administration in 
Harrisburg to work with John Kennedy's 
in Washington and the fact that Penn- 
sylvania is still suffering from inefficient 
Republican rule prior to the Democratic 

When asked about the "corruption" in 
Philadelphia and why he would not agree 
to a Grand Jury Investigation (alluding to 
the Frankford El affair) Dilworth replied 
that while bribery did indeed take place, 
it was his administration which discover- 
ed and corrected the situation. 

The proposed Grand Jury Investigation 
was just an attempt by Philadelphia Re- 
publicans to wreck the Democratic party 
through means of guilt by investigation. 
By way of example Dilworth noted that 
there is no investigation of the Board of 
Directors of a bank when one of the tell- 
ers is discovered embezzling funds. 

Other Questions 

Other questions dealt with the state 
constitution which Dilworth characterized 
as a "serious detriment to good govern- 
ment in the state." He also feels that 
Pennsylvanians must "work very aggres- 
sively for proper reapportionment." 

Again asserting that much that is wrong 
with the state is the aftermath of improper 
Republican administration, Dilworth gave 
as an example the state highway depart- 
ment which was, up until eight years ago, 
a "political football." 

He also added that as a result of the 
Lawrence Administration, Pennsylvania 

Betsy Miller 

Carol Jimenez: 
"There is definitely 
something greatly 
wrong with it. A 
government should 
not arrouse from 
the governed the 
contempt that ours 
does. I don't think 
the fault lies in the 
members of Jigger- 
board because they 
take their difficult job seriously and do 
their best. Rather the problem is the 
many outdated, picayune, or unnecessary 
rules which they must try to enforce. 

Leanne Grebe: "I have always respect- 
ed it because I started school here under 
a hall president who taught us respect for 
it. She taught us the rules and we never 
had any quarrels with it. This may be 
the biggest problem-teaching incoming 
students to respect it." 

Marylin Shaver: "It would be great if it 
would work. The students, however, 
don't seem to have respect for it or for 
anyone who tries to enforce it." 

Bob Marriner: "Noisy dorms and trod- 
den-down grass show how the Senate 
members bow to the pressure of their 
friends or society in general." 

Kaye Cassel — "Even though I've kept 
my 'nose clean' for the last three years, 
I have neither admiration nor respect for 
our student government bodies. Instead 
of actually complying with the rules as 
should be the case, we merely find de- 
vious ways to circumvent those esteemed 
statutes. Perhaps, if I could see some 
rhyme or reason to them I'd be more 
willing to conform to them. Also, I dis- 
like having it always held over my head 
as a threat — "Big Sister is watching you." 

Nancy Dahringer: "I think it's good ex- 
cept for the matter of permissions. I 
know of another college where the stu- 

dents are allowed to be late a total of 20 
minutes a semester. Such a system would 
eliminate the mad dash back to the dorm 
when you're a little late. If you're late a 
few minutes, that time is taken off your 
20 minutes. Other than that it's very 
well run." 

Dean Flinchbaugh: "Student govern- 
ment is very commendable provided those 
in positions of leadership are popularly 
elected and execute their duties with an 
attitude of service rather than one of as- 
sumed superiority." 

Aglaia Stephanis: "Student government 
on this campus is the biggest farce since 
"The Would-Be Invalid." We are all sup- 
posed to be members of RWSGA, but the 
end result of what we elect is something 
akin to a kangaroo court. Jiggerboard 
has compounded a great body of rules to 
encroach on our personal liberty. In 
many cases our parents wouldn't force us 
to obey such rules. For instance: restric- 
tions on wearing bermudas on Sunday, 
having your bed made by ten, signing out 
in detail, and no smoking anywhere on 
campus. Often, too, if one does or does 
not get demerits depends on who you are, 
where you are, and the mood of the peo- 
ple around you. Jiggerboard members 
don't like it when somebody on Jigger- 
board is given demerits and they some- 
times use their power to vent personal 
grudges. While in college we should 
learn to be tolerant of others — we can't 
give demerits to someone who doesn't 
please us when we are out on our own. 
Should the only purpose of campus stu- 
dent government be to enforce rules? 

Pat Shonk: "Most of the rules are 
pretty good and enforcement is fairly 
good although it could be better. It's al- 
ways hard to have students governing 
students, so it won't be perfect. It is a 
lot easier here for example, with the late 
permissions than it is in many other col- 

will have, for the next four years, "ade- 
quate funds for the construction of high- 
ways in our state." 

He also mentioned that the state "can- 
not increase taxes on business and hold 
business." This, he explained, is because 
industry no longer feels a loyalty to any 
one state and as a result will go where 
taxes are lowest. There is much com- 
petition among the states for new industry 
and this competition must be met, Dil- 
worth noted. 

In reply to a question about the reversal 
of his 1958 position favoring admission 

of Red China into the UN, Dilworth an- 
swered that since that time many new 
African nations have taken up positions 
in the world body, creating an unstable 
situation. It is this situation which must 
first be corrected before the problem of 
Red China's membership can be dealt 
with. He added that it is "essential to 
preserve the UN." 

While no new programs were pr°* 
claimed duirng the afternoon, one fact 
stood out — the Democratic party has a 
strong candidate and a man of conviction 
to enter in the November election.

Regular Checking Accounts, $100 Minimum Balance 

Dutch Flier 

By Chip Burkhardt 

Today, May Day, has all the Valley spring sports at work. 
The baseball team takes on the Albright Lions at home at three o'clock 
while the tennis team travels to Albright and the track squad visits Juniata 
for a triangular meet with PMC and Juniata. 

Last year the baseball team did not play Albright, but this year's 
Dutchman squad looks good and hopes to break the long Albright jinx 
on the Valley teams. The series to date stands at 26 wins and 36 losses 
for the Valley. 

The tennis team, in the midst of an 0-4 season hopes to capture a 
win to make up for last years 6-3 beating. Albright lost a number of last 
year's squad, while LV returns five lettermen, making the chances look 
good. Albright leads in this series 16 wins to 11 losses. 

The track squad, as yet winless, finished second to PMC last year in 
a triangular meet with Juniata College. The final score stood at PMC 
87 8/15, LVC 39 11/15, and Juniata 34 11/15. With the scores of 
this year's meets running higher in comparison to last year's, there is 
a good chance that the cinder men can capture their first win. 

Returning from the Easter break with a 3-0 record, the LVC nine 
dropped two in a row before winning the second half of a double-header 
at Wilkes College. 

The first loss, a 9-5 count, was to PMC here at home. PMC, led 
by Horner's three run homer and 3 for 3 this afternoon, were tied by 
the Dutchmen in the third and fourth innings, but put the game on ice 
with a three run eighth inning. 

Bob Stull started for LV and went six innings, allowing ten hits, six 
runs, striking out three and walking three. He was relieved by Chuck 
Ebersole, who allowed the last three markers. 

Ebersole led the 9-hit LV attack with a 3 for 4 afternoon, with one 
home run, his third of the season. 

At Wilkes, the Dutchmen were never in the game after the third 
inning, when Wilkes won the game going away with 14 hits and 14 runs 
to the Valley's 8 hits and 3 runs. 

John Yajko started the game for LV going five innings and allow- 
ing ten hits and nine runs, striking out two and walking one. Tom Webb 
finished the game, allowing four hits and five runs, striking out none and 
walking two. 

Fred Tyson led the LV hitting attack with a two for four afternoon 
with two doubles. 

In the second game, the Dutchmen jumped into a quick 4-0 lead 
adding runs in the sixth and seventh innings to stave off a four-run threat 
fostered by Lou Zampetti's grand-slam homer in the sixth. Chuck Eber- 
sole went the distance allowing seven hits, four runs, striking out five and 
walking one, while giving two for three at the plate. 

Bob Zweitzig was the lead hitter, going three for four with a double 
and two triples. He was followed by two for three performances by 
Ebersole, Jerry Bowman, Barry Yocum, and Carvel Mowery. The team's 
leading hitters are Chuck Ebersole, who is 12 for twenty with a .600 aver- 
age, Bob Zweitzig, 9 for 19 with a .474 average and John Yajko, 8 for 
18 with a .444 average. The team's batting average is .323, with 54 hits 
in 164 at bat. 







Betty J. Bowman Attends 
Women's Sports Meeting 

Miss Betty Jane Bowman, assistant 
professor of physical education, attended 
a state committee meeting of the Pennsyl- 
vania Division for Girls and Women's 
Sports on Sunday, April 29. The pur- 
pose of the state committee is to bring to- 
gether the many organizations working 
with the girls' and women's sports in Penn- 
sylvania and at the same time to increase 
interest and participation in sports in this 

The meeting was held in the State 
Education Building in Harrisburg.

F & M And Susquehanna 
Defeat LV Cindermen 

Since the Easter break the LVC track 
squad has dropped a meet to Franklin and 
Marshall and finished second at Susque- 
hanna in a triangular meet with Lycom- 
ing and Susquehanna. 

The bright spots in these meets were 
provided by freshman Terry Herr who 
copped 7 firsts and a second in the two 

In the 82-49 loss Herr won the 100 and 
the 220 yd. dashes and the 120 yd. high 
hurdles while finishing second in the 220 
yard low hurdles. 

Other firsts in this meet went to John 
Witter with a 128' 6Vi" discus throw and 
Dave Mahler with an 11' 6" pole vault 
(his third first place finish). 

At Susquehanna LVC piled up 59 
points to 74 for Susequehanna and 24 for 
Lycoming. Herr again won the 100 and 
220 yard dashes with times of 10:2 and 
22:8 second and added both the 120 yard 
high hurdles and the 220 yard low hur- 

The other LVC firsts were in the discus

La Vie Collegienne, Saturday, May 5, 1962 


For the sake of your future 
and the future of your coun- 
try, let's fervently hope not! 
But the sad fact is that too 
many gifted teachers are leav- 
ing our colleges for better 
paying positions. 

The cause is fundamental. 
They simply cannot make ends 
meet on their present low sal- 
aries. And, much as they love 
their work, they are forced to 
seek jobs in other fields. 

In the face of this discour- 
aging trend, more classrooms 
keep getting more crowded. 
And by 1967, college applica- 
tions are expected to double. 

It's time to put a stop to this 
nonsense. Won't you help? 
Help the college of your choice 
now. The returns will be 
greater than '-on think.

Math Department To Use 
New Achievement Tests 

The department of mathematics of 
Lebanon Valley College is cooperating 
with the Educational Testing Service of 
Princeton, New Jersey, in a program to 
develop a new series of achievement tests 
which reflect some of the new trends in 
the field of mathematics. Thirty col- 
lege mathematics departments were select- 
ed for trial administration of the new tests 
with appropriate groups. 

At Lebanon Valley College during the 
first week in May there will be adminis- 
tered to a section of Mathematics 10, 
Principles of Mathematics, the new test 
in College Algebra. Also, one section of 
the College's Calculus course, Mathema- 
tics 11, will be given the new trial form 
calculus examination. Both of these ex- 
aminations have been revised over those 
previously used with regard to content 
and difficulty level. 

Paul Henning, Jr., assistant professor 
of mathematics, is acting as coordinator 
for the program here on campus.

Peggy Zimmerman 
Is Beauty Queen 

Miss Peggy Zimmerman, a sophomore at Lebanon Valley College, 
was chosen as Miss Greater Harrisburg in the contest held on May 12. 
Having received this honor, Peggy wil now have the opportunity to com- 
pete in the Miss Pennsylvania Contest, which will be held in West Chester 
on June 29. 

The Miss Greater Harrisburg Contest is 
sponsored by the various chapters of the 
Junior Chamber of Commerce in the Har- 
risburg Area. The program was divided 
into the three regular categories — evening 
gown, talent and bathing suit competition. 

For the evening gown competition 
Peggy chose a very simple white floor 
length gown with a baby blue cummer- 
bund, long white gloves, white shoes and 
crystal accessories. During this portion of 
the program the girls were asked to reply 
spontaneously to two questions. To her 
first question "What would you do if 
your fiance was an astronaut and two 
weeks before the wedding he was sup- 
posed to be shot to the moon?", Peggy 
replied that she would get a book on how 
to become an astronaut in one easy lesson 
and join him. The second question was 
of a more serious nature and Peggy was 
asked to elaborate on what her idea of a 
truly great person was. 

In the talent division of the program 
Peggy sang a medley from Brigadoon, a 
Broadway play and movie with music and 
lyrics by Lerner and Lowe. She wore an 
authentic Stuart Tartan kilt and a white 
long sleeved ruffled blouse and black vest. 

The nine area beauties all wore the 
identical regulation Catalina black bathing 
suits for that portion of the program. 

After winning the title of Miss Greater 
Harrisburg, Peggy received a scholarship 
of $200.00, sponsored by the Coca Cola 
Company, and a complete wardrobe from 
Pomeroy's of Harrisburg among many 
other gifts and awards. 

Miss Susan Goodman, from Hershey 
Jr. College was runner-up and Miss Elaine 
Fasick, from Harrisburg, came in third. 

On campus Peggy participates in SAI, 
White Hats and Concert Choir. Next 
year she will be news editor for La Vie.

Shay To Get Degree 
From U. Of Penn. 

Ralph S. Shay, associate professor of 
history and chairman of the department 
of history and political science, has been 
notified by the University of Pennsylvania 
that he will receive his doctor of philo- 
sophy degree from the University's Gradu- 
ate School of Arts and Sciences on Mon- 
day, May 21. 

Ralph S. Shay 

Notification came after the University 
approved his dissertation, "Italy's Loyalty 
to the Triple Alliance, 1900-1902." In 
this study, Shay attempted to deter- 
mine whether Italy had violated her obli- 
gations in the treaty of the Triple Alli- 
ance with Germany and Austria-Hungary 
when she signed the Mediterranean Agree- 
ment of 1900 and the Neutrality Agree- 
ment of 1902 with France. 

After consulting source materials in 
German, French and Italian (the latter 
was self-taught), Shay reached the 
conclusion that Italy's agreements with 
France were in harmony with the letter 
and spirit of her committments in the 
Triple Alliance. 

Shay graduated from Lebanon 
High School. He received his B.A. de- 
gree at LVC in 1942, graduating cum 
laude as a member of Phi Alpha Epsilon 
and Pi Gamma Mu. A leader in campus 
organizations and captain of the football 
team in his senior year, he attained list- 
ing in "Who's Who in American Universi- 
ties and Colleges." 

Following graduation, Shay en- 
listed in the Army. Discharged as a cap- 
tain in 1945, he earned his M.A. degree 
at the University of Pennsylvania. 

In 1948 Shay joined the LVC 
f aculty as assistant professor of history. 
Securing a lV^-year leave of absence in 
1951, he re-entered the service, becoming 
chief editor of the Military History Sec- 
tion, 8th Army in Japan and Korea. 

Shay was promoted to the rank 
of associate professor in 1958. Since 
1957 he has served as chairman of the 
department of history and political sci- 
ence. He was the recipient of a faculty 
award from 1955 to 1959 and again in 
1961 and served as director of the divi- 
sion of social sciences from February 
1957 to September 1961. 

As a member of the American As- 
sociation of Teachers of Chinese Lan- 
guage and Culture, Shay attended 
its 4th Annual Conference and the Joint 
Session of the 8th Round Table Confer-

La Vie Interviews 
African Ambassador 

by Tom J. Holmes 

"People must never be allowed to carry their quarrels to the ultimate 
end of self-destruction." So stated the Honourable Richard E. Kelfa- 
Caulker, Ambassador of Sierra Leone to the United States, in an interview 
with La Vie Collegienne. In answer to a question about African con- 
fidence in the West, Dr. Caulker said that there is a need for some 
power to come between Western quarrels and that power must be the 
United Nations. 

Dr. Caulker further stated that while 
the backgrounds of African countries are 
in many ways similar, "the situations are 
not at all the same." Most of Africa was 
at one time under colonial rule, but now, 
except for some countries to the south, 
the various countries are gradually gain- 
ing independence. 

Sierra Leone became completely self- 
governing on April 27 of last year. While 
the country was named in 1450 by the 
Portuguese navigator, Pedro de Cintra, it 
was not colonized until 1787 when Great 
Britain began using it as a home for 
freed slaves. The first elections since in- 
dependence will be held May 25. 

When asked about Sierra Leone's stand 
on the resumption of US nuclear testing, 
Dr. Caulker replied that he is "disappoint- 
ed that there should be any testing at all" 
and feds that it is not necessary to have 
atomic tests. Despite strong cultural ties 
with Great Britain, he would censure that 
country for allowing Christmas Island to 
be used for the tests. He added that he 
opposes all testing and not only that of 
the US. 

Red China 

Last December Sierra Leone was one 
of seven African countries which voted 
in favor of Red China's admission to the 
United Nations. The Ambassador gave 
two reasons for this. 

First, the "African Reason," is that it 
is impossible to negotiate with people who 
are excluded from the negotiating. And, 
secondly, Sierra Leone took over British 
obligations as their own when it gained 

Since Great Britain recognizes Red 
China and voted for its admission into 
the world body, Sierra Leone also voted 
that way. Dr. Caulker added that his 
country has no quarrel with the Chinese 
government and hence saw no reason to 
oppose it. 

Regarding the effects of segregation 
ractices in the US on the American image 
in Africa, Dr. Caulker said that Ameri- 
cans imagine themselves to be known 
more in Africa than they in fact are. The 
apartheid policy in South Africa is re- 
sented much more than is segregation in 
the US. There is a tendency to forgive 
such practices in countries outside Africa, 
but it cannot be forgiven in a "blackman's

bia, a country 500 miles north of Sierra 
Leone, added that the "image of America 
in Africa is very light." This is due in 
part to the policy of isolationism once 
popular in the US. He said that the 
segregationist practices in the US are not 

as clearly known as is the apartheid in 
South Africa. 

Both men said they have had no trou- 
ble with segregation in this country be- 
cause they "move in circles where that is 
not likely to happen." The State Depart- 
ment has issued manuals which would 
help Africans avoid unpleasant situations, 
but some diplomats try to make a test of 
US practices. 

African Common Market 

Dr. Caulker said that the possibility of 
an African Common Market has been 
talked about and that certain African 
states, particularly the French areas, are 
already cooperating in the free transport 
of goods. 

He explained that some free trade exists 
because no real lines of demarcation have 
been drawn, nor should be. Tribal 
bounds seem to hold despite political 
bounds being different. 

In regard to the possibility of a State 
Church in Sierra Leone, Dr. Caulker 
pointed out that there is a United Chris- 
tian Council whereby the Protestant 
churches in the country function together 
in relation to the government (with re- 
spect to such things as schools which are 
run by the various churches). The Coun- 
cil also makes communication between 
the churches easier. 

"Whether this will lead to one Church 
of West Africa one cannot say at the mo- 
ment," Dr. Caulker concluded, but there 
is a possibility of a National Church 
emerging out of the United Christian 

Dr. Caulker will be on campus next 
year as a chapel speaker. 

Boyle And Brill 
Will Extend Studies 

Dean Carl Y. Ehrhart has approved, 
upon recommendation from the depart- 
ment of mathematics, the candidacies of 
the junior mathematics majors, James 
Boyle and Robert Brill for Independent 
Study and Honors in Mathematics. 

James Boyle, assistant to Professor Bis- 
singer in the building of the Mathematics 
Seminar Library, will study under As- 
sistant Professor Bechtell of the Depart- 
ment. He will explore the aspects of 
modern abstract algebra that will lead to 
consideration of Latin squares and ortho- 
gonal squares, now very popular in the 
designing of an experiment. 

Mr. Boyle's program of study will be- 
gin with a summer of reading and in the 
fall he will begin writing a paper.

La Vie Collegienne, Thursday, May 17, 1962 

Swan Song 

This issue ends three years of double column dissertations on page 
two of La Vie known as JMK editorials. One year of La Vie's issued 
under my direction has also come to a close, and it would be easy to be- 
come sentimental about the many hours, pleasures and problems con- 
nected with editing this newspaper. 

A La Vie editor's main concern is time — budgeting of working time, 
and deadlines. Fifteen hours per week, more or less, every other week, 
are La Vie working hours. What pleasures arise during those hours? 
Perhaps the presentation of a clever feature by someone developing his 
talent; the announcement that there's more than enough news for this 
issue; or an occasional tune to accompany our efforts, by one of our own 
La Vie Artist Series performers. Indeed, someone passing beneath our 
cozy pie-shaped office in Carnegie Lounge is likely to hear anything from 
the click of typewriters to an old-time wooden recorder or the plaintive 
strum of you-know-who's you-know-what. 

What are the problems which plague us during those hours? There 
are technical problems and the striving for accuracy, and there are late 
news stories and late reporters. People let you down and hold you up. 
But those difficulties which accumulate at the office are negligible com- 
pared with the main problem on this campus: chipping away at the rock 
of student apathy, beating the rock in hopes that a spring of interest in 
something will gush forth. It is the duty of a college paper to bring to 
the students' attention information which will cause them to think, not 
merely vegetate from day to day in the rut of routine. To do this without 
raising controversy for its own sake, and without resorting to sensational- 
ism, is the aim of a good paper. 

La Vie Evolves 

In the past year we have changed the format of the paper somewhat; 
our headlines are taller, our leads are in larger type. The staff has de- 
veloped some new features, some new writers and editors. We have 
tried, furthermore, to keep abreast of current events, on campus, state, 
national and international scenes, and to deal with some of these issues 
in print. 

When a staff elects editors, it places in the hands of these students 
the right to express themselves on page two from their point of view. 
These opinions are recorded in each issue for all to read, and those 
words can never be called back. Therefore, it behooves any writer of 
editorials to do thorough and accurate research, and see that what is set 
in type is carefully thought out and discreetly expressed. It is frightening 
to contemplate the results of libel charges, and embarrassing to read in 
tranquillity hasty words composed in an inflamed moment. On the other 
hand, one should not keep silent merely to avoid an issue. Students have 
a right to expect courage as well as discretion on the part of those editing 
La Vie. This is a combination difficult to maintain, but it is a worthy goal. 

As one who has worked with the students taking over La Vie for 
next year, I have great faith that they will do their utmost to uphold 
the strong points of the paper and improve its weaknesses. Their whims 
will undoubtedly guide their pens to topics other than those treated this 
year (for which the long-suffering Knights, for one, will perhaps be grate- 
ful), and I ask for Judy and Tom attention to and respectful consideration 
for their ideas. 

I want to thank everyone with whom I have worked on the paper 
for their part in making La Vie what it is. Some of the most memorable 
hours of my college life have transpired amid galleys and copy, and these 
experiences in college journalism have laid the foundation for my in- 
tended career in professional reporting and writing. (JMK) 

Why Johnny Can't 

In the "Freedom to Read" bulletin, issued by the American Book 
Publishers, we are confronted by some startling facts concerning 
the literary clean-ups being conducted in many states. These self- 
appointed Carrie Nations who wreak their vengeance not upon saloon- 
keepers but against librarians are laboring under the delusion that some 
of the greatest works of literature — past and present — are pornographic 
and unfit for growing minds. 

These committees made up of panic-stricken people who have little 
knowledge of literature to begin with, are attacking such recognized con- 
temporary classics as J. D. Salinger's Catcher in the Rye and John Stein- 
beck's Grapes of Wrath, both recognized and recommended by many of 
our nation's foremost educators. Even text books are not exempt from 
the unfounded criticism. An American History text was banned in one 
school district because it contained four pages dealing with bundling. 

These well-meaning people often make some rather ludicrous state- 
ments. Take one of these clean-minded types who insisted that Edgar 
Rice Burrough's books be banned since Tarzan and Jane had never mar- 
ried and were obviously living in sin. Another smut seeker insists that 
many American youths are immoral because they have read Plato's 
works. In the first place, Plato was no more suggestive than Grace Liv- 
ingston Hill, and in the second place, how many American youths actually 
read Plato? 

Although these mistaken literary janitors would like to see these 
books of evident merit sealed in a tomb, any intelligent reader would 
strongly object, insisting that these books should be read, not dead. (EHN) 

Crotchets A Final Word 

by Dave Grove 

Wig and Buckle's presentation of Look 
iioineward, Angel last Saturday and Mon- 
day night proved to be a real treat, it 
was certainly pleasant to be assured that 
we have, at Valley, people capable of 
presenting a performance as convincing 
1,1 should say as moving) as this one was. 

Certainly a great deal of credit is due 
to ail those who were associated with the 
producuon, but it is just barely possible 
that those who designed and built the set 
are particularly worthy of commendation, 
ihat they were able, with Engle Hall's 
cramped and limited facilities, to provide 
a set that managed to look, if not actually 
spacious, at least roomy enough for the 
action of the play, is a credit to their in- 

In speaking of the players (at least, for 
the moment, of the three leads, Mary 
Louise Lamke, Rowland Barnes, and 
George Hollich), it would be fatuous to 
cry and choose one as superior to the rest, 
since they all did a superior job. Each 
of them made of their respective character 
a very real and interesting person. 

Perhaps the most exciting and moving, 
as well as the most tragic, moment in the 
play came in act three, when W. O. Gant 
(Rowland Barnes) in one short moment 
of wild, unrestrained passion, almost 
brings Mrs. Gant (Mary Louise Lamke) 
to destroy the Dixieland Boarding House, 
and with it, her fixation in her property 
and money. But she is too small; she is 
not great enough to escape from her fixa- 
tion in these things, and we see that she 
is lost in her limitedness. Had this scene 
failed, the whole play would have been 
meaningless. But the scene was acted 
with a conviction and a convincingness 
that left the spectator (or, perhaps, by 
this time, the spectator, too, was some- 
how a real participant) breathless and 
pitying. And this was true of the play as 
a whole. 

To The Misinformed 

I was "Where the Boys Were" — an in- 
terview with a first hand observer of the 
Fort Lauderdale excursion. 

My sunburned informer began, "I'm 
sure any LVC student would have made 
the trip — given the chance and the 
money." The reported glamour and 
wildness as advertised in the movie, 
"Where the Boys Are," magazines, and 
newscasts drew a large crowd of college 
students who expected to be greeted by 
a bikini-clad beauty in a T-bird with a 
case of beer in the trunk. 

According to my informer (whose nose 
was painfully red) this just wasn't so. In- 
stead the girls wore one piece bathing 
suits, couldn't stand alcohol, and only 
wanted to twist. 

The wild parties which attracted so 
much publicity last year were chaperoned 
this Easter by the local police officials. 
There was no protestation on the part of 
the students. 

This reporter's observer assured me that 
very little alcohol was consumed (at least 
in his vicinity) and the vacationers con- 
ducted themselves in a noisy but orderly 
manner. "Instead, open friendliness made 
one feel as though he were at home on his 
own campus. Everyone talked to every- 
one else, establishing contacts through 
mutual acquaintances." 

'The kids didn't come down here look- 
ing for trouble," said my friend as he 
peeled the flaking skin from his arm. 
"They were looking for fun and a place 
where they could twist day and night 
(which they did to the music of bands, 
provided by the townspeople)." Surpris- 
ingly, the churches were attended. 

The Lauderdale newspaper published an 
apology to the college students for blam- 
ing them for the riots and property dam- 
age, most of which was actually caused 
by high school students from Miami and 
Lauderdale. "This information is not 
made known in the north; only the sensa- 
tionalism is broadcasted," protested my 
indignant vacationer. 

He recommends the trip to everyone. 
"It's really an experience!" I believe his 
enthusiasm for Florida will long outlast 
his sun tan. 

Lebanon Valley College formally met the freshman, Class of 1962, 
in September of '58. These students were welcomed by many individuals 
and organizations and were urged to use their college years to equip 
themselves for the richest kind of life. Now those freshmen are seniors 
and about to depart from this institution. Are they prepared to deal with 
the situations which will almost surely confront them? What has college 
done for them — has it prepared them for life? 

This editorial is not a complete and wholly accurate picture of the 
responsibility a college has to its students, for an education is a nebul- 
ous and elusive thing. It exists primarily as a generality, and it is only in 
generalities that it can and will be discussed. 

Students pass through college on the road to adjustment. Four 
years — a gantlet to be run in quest of a dream, in pursuit of credentials. 
The campus is the microcosm of our society. It is filled with organiza- 
tions and activities and fellowship groups which have been elevated to 
the level of the curriculum and encouraged by the authorities. From our 
social organizations students will go on to the country clubs, from the 
overabundance of campus officership into business and from the exclusive 
bull sessions into private neighborhood "social sets." 

However, a college education must do more than merely prepare 
students to take their place in society. It must endeavor to promote at- 
titudes, habits and zeal which will make them loyal citizens of the United 
States and defenders of democracy. In the protective atmosphere of the 
campus the responsibilities to their country and mankind take root. The 
problems of the world must be theirs to debate and sometimes to solve, 
academically and frequently naively, but a college education must lead 
them on the road past prejudice and ignorance and inspire them to ac- 
complish great things in the world of the educated man. 

Our institutions of higher education must also make students aware 
of their responsibility to themselves and to others. No one can live in 
their own small world without being aware of the world of others. 

In four years students can only begin to scratch the surface of the 
body of knowledge. They must continue their search for truth through- 
out the rest of their lives. They must be aware of the unanswerable 
problems in this world and be ready to face them. 

As individuals they will react to their college education with varying 
degrees of intensity. All of them will have been influenced by it, but most 
of them will soon be preoccupied with the mundane business of living. 
Their newly discovered sense of awareness, their feelings of responsibility, 
their concern with ideas will fade into the various corners of their per- 
sonalities. However, they will still have the potentiality to be and do what 
their education has a right to demand of them. 

Our generation must bring new strength and wisdom to the fateful 
decisions that our times make necessary. Our graduates cannot be satis- 
fied to produce the ineffectual mass and a handful of lonely leaders. They 
must create a moral and intellectual fabric so pronounced that it will be- 
come the criterion of our generation. (JKR) 

Apathy Rides Again 

On Thursday evening, May 3rd, the much publicized Student- Admin- 
stration question and answer session was held. Its poor attendance re- 
flected the apathetic and inexcusable attitude of our students. 

Dr. Miller discussed many things and gave clear and serious answers 
to the students' questions. Topics were covered in such important fields 
as the building program — the possibilities of having a new auditorium, a 
student union building, and new men's dorms; the curve system; May 
Day; class cuts; sex education courses; and dining hall rates. In short, 
almost any campus situation imaginable from parking problems to national 

Those students who did attend must have left the meeting with a 
great sense of satisfaction that the school's present — and future — will be 
guided by such a capable person as Dr. Miller. In case you are wonder- 
ing exactly what went on at the meeting, ask around. Perhaps just talk- 
ing to some of the students who bothered to come, you may be infected 
by their contagious interest. (EHN)

La Vie Collegienne, Thursday, May 17, 1962 


Dutch Flier 

by Chip Burkhardt 

The Spring sports squads haven't fared too well to date but 1 think 
we should take a quick review and perhaps a look at next year's chances. 


The squad now stands at 5-7 with a 4-7 conference record. Despite 
this losing record it is by far the strongest spring sport. 

Only two regulars will be leaving this year, catcher Brooks Slatcher 
and shortstop and pitcher Bob Stull. Returning are regulars Chuck 
Ebersole, who pitches and plays shortstop in addition to leading the team 
in hitting; first baseman Bob Zweitzig, a frosh; second baseman Ted 
Bonsall, a sophomore; and third baseman Jerry Bowman, a junior. In 
the outfield are John Yajko, a junior, and freshmen Barry Yocom and Carv 
Mowery. Also making brief appearances with varied success were sopho- 
mores Fred Tyson and Tom Webb. Tyson was usually inserted for his 
hitting ability while Webb has finished a few games on the normal. 

The team has solid hitting and with a little fielding and pitching help 
to go with the returnees, the team could go a long way next year. 


The tennis squad now stands at 1-7. The main problem here seems 
to be a lack of two solid performers in the vital 1 and 2 positions. The 
ability of the team is so well balanced that anyone inserted from positions 
4 through 6 has a fine chance of winning and Larry Stein, who has been 
suffering at first position, could certainly repeat last year's winning per- 
formance at third. 

The squad loses two lettermen at graduation — senior captain Dick Blair 
and Hakim Lys. 

Returning regulars are juniors Bob Andreozzi, Dennis Phillippy and 
Jay Kreider. Sophomores are Larry Stein and Chip Burkhardt and fresh- 
men are Bill Checket and Glenn MacGregor. 

If the team hopes to improve on this year's record it will have to look 
for a couple of outstanding freshmen or some marked improvement from 
the returnees. 


The cindermen have also had their miseries this Spring, but despite 
the winless record the season has seen some fine individual performances. 

Freshman Terry Herr has scored 118 points and won 1 7 first places 
this season. This performance was only 13 points off the school record 
held by Aubry Kershner. 

Dave Mahler set a school record in the pole vault as high point to 
his fine season. 

Other returnees who placed consistently are John Witter, a weight 
man who holds the school record in the discus; Howie Jones, a freshman 
miler; Jim Brommer, a junior distance man; Bob Brill, Dave Riether, 
John Lubans, Carl Miller and Harry Peachy. 

NSF Gives Grant 
For Summer Study 

The National Science Foundation has 
awarded Lebanon Valley College a grant 
of $9,515.00 for the support of an under- 
graduate science education program dur- 
ing the summer months of 1962. The 
program, covering a 10-week period, will 
be conducted under the supervision of Dr. 
Karl Lockwood, assistant professor of 

Eight students will participate in this 
program. They are Guy Gerhart, David 
Rabenold, Ronald Hafer, Ralph Kreiser, 
Larry Funk, Gary Wolfgang, David 
Grove, and Robert Hamilton. 

The primary purpose of the undergrad- 
uate research participation or independent 
study supported by the National Science 
Foundation's Undergraduate Science Edu- 
cation Program is to further the educa- 
tion and training of the undergraduate par- 
ticipant in his individual capacity. It of- 
fers undergraduates an opportunity to 
participate in areas of study beyond the 
normal auricular offerings. 

Four Math Majors 
In Insurance Jobs 

This summer four mathematics majors 
will be employed in three prominent New 
York and Philadelphia insurance offices. 
Juniors Robert Brill and James Boyle will 
work as actuarial student assistants at 
New York Life in New York, and at 
Penn Mutual in Philadelphia, respectively. 

Seniors James Dressel and Edward 
Mirmack will be employed at Provident 
Mutual Life in Philadelphia, where Don- 
ald Murray, a 1961 alumnus of Valley is 
currently employed. 

James Dressel will be permanently em- 
ployed at Provident Mutual Life, while 
the other students will be employed for 
the summer's duration. Bob Brill is re- 
turning for his second summer at New 
York Life.

LV Baseball Squad 
Loses To E-town 

The LVC baseball squad, with Satur- 
day's 5-2 loss to Elizabethtown, now has 
a seasonal record of five wins and four 

Since its win at Wilkes, the squad has 
dropped decisions to Susquehanna (18-2), 
Albright (6-1), Moravian (24-2), and Eliza- 
bethtown (5-2), while winning over Dick- 
inson by a 17-1 count. 

In the contest, John Suffel and Ray 
Diener held the Valley to only five hits 
including two to the team's leading hitter, 
Chuck Ebersole. 

Barry Yocom scored LV's first run in 
the fourth and in the sixth Carv Mowery 
drove Yocom across for LV's second and 
last marker. 

Chuck Ebersole went the route for the 
losers allowing nine hits and four walks 
while striking out six.

Robert Brill, presently the intern in the 
department of mathematics, will study 
with Professor Bissinger. He will begin 
this summer reading up on the concepts 
of mortality as it is applied to the inani- 
mate world. His research will hit on the 
well-known methods used for calculating 
life characteristics of humans. 

In the fall Mr. Brill will begin writing 
a theory and technique type of survey on 
existing material. His work will be bene- 
fitted to some extent by the Navy Re- 
search now being done in the same field 
by Professor Bissinger for the contract 
held by the College.

Students Discuss 
Integrated Studies 

by Ethel Nagle 

Since Lebanon Valley is a liberal arts school, some programs have 
been established to give the student a broad background in various fields 
that he might otherwise miss. These Integrated Studies courses; IS 10 — 
the Natural Sciences, IS 20 — the Humanities, and IS 15-30 — the Social 
Sciences have been a part of the curriculum for several years. 

that the IS 

Question: Do you feel 
courses you have taken are beneficial to 
the student body as a whole? Would you 
like to see them changed or modified in 
any respects? 

Tom Balsbaugh: I felt that IS-20 was 
arranged very well last year. It was a 
truly integrated course because it pre- 
sented various aspects of many ideas and 
philosophies and was not opinionated. IS- 
30 was another story. The purpose of 
the course — to explain and expand man's 
basic social values — is good. From the 
standpoint of instruction, it is not an in- 
tegrated course, because it gives only one 
side of the picture. A problem cannot be 
explained as all black or all white. There 
must be some gray. 

Libbet Vastine: On the whole, I think 
IS- 10 could be beneficial if it were pre- 
sented in a manner that would give a 
summary of the sciences and their general 
importance and not dwell on a few scat- 
tered, irrelevant, and immaterial facts that 
don't benefit you anyway. I liked IS-20 
because of its emphasis on philosophy and 
enjoyed the literature I might have missed 

Carolyn Miller and Jean Brown: We 

HATE IS-10!! 

Ed Morgan: I've taken all three of 
them. Humanities was probably the most 
valuable because it had more in it than 
the other two courses. IS-30 could be 
valuable, but I feel it's too sketchy. IS-10 
is a complete waste of time. It is equi- 
valent to a ninth grade general science 
course. The classes should be concerned 
with philosophically scientific questions 
and discussions of the effects of science 
on our society. This course could address 
itself to problems discussed in such mag- 
azines as Natural History and Scientific 
American. I'd like to see it given as IS- 
35 or 40. I don't know if underclassmen 
could interpret these ideas as well as up- 
perclassmen, since the latter group might 
be better able to discuss these problems 
by virtue of their background. 

Bill Newcomer: I think IS-15 is very 
beneficial, especially for those who haven't 
had any background in the social sci- 
ences. However, IS-10 is a smattering of 
everything and not enough of anything. 
I would therefore suggest that a course in 
one of the natural sciences be required in- 

Lee Lapioli: I think IS-20 and 30 can 
be helpful for science majors, but I don't 
think they should be emphasized too 
much. The science majors have enough 
to do without all that additional reading. 

Jim Boyle: Yes and yes. I think they're 
a necessary part of any person who wants 
to be considered an educated individual. 
I think IS-20, in particular, is essential in 
a liberal arts school. Besides teaching 
facts, which I don't believe is the main 
purpose anyway, the course is enlighten- 
ing and informative in that it covers many 
time periods, ancient and modern, and 
emphasizes the formation of ideas during 
these periods. I don't see how it is pos- 
sible to get anything out of IS-30 with the 
amount of reading required accompanied 
with really little understanding due to the 
lack of adequate class discussion. Possi- 
bly essay tests do reveal a person's knowl- 
edge, but in my opinion, all you have to 
do is throw the bull. The purpose of as- 
signing the New York Times as outside 
reading material is to develop good read- 
ing habits and a knowledge of what's go- 
ing on. But I don't think this purpose is 
being fulfilled through the exams. Yet, 
all in all, I believe that IS-20 and 30 are 
quite beneficial.

Students Take Part 
In Nationwide Exam 

In conjunction with the Society of Ac- 
tuaries, students of the mathematics de- 
partment took the nation-wide examina- 
tion in calculus, analytic geometry, alge- 
bra and trigonometry on Wednesday, May 
16. Russell Bonsall, Carroll Stroh, Allen 
Green, James Boyle, James Davis, James 
Dressel, Italo Lapioli, Edward McKay, 
David Hively and Gerald Brownawell, 
math majors, participated in the test. 
Russell Hertzog, physics major, and 
Joseph Clark, chemistry major, also took 
the examinations. 

In the afternoon, the Part III examina- 
tion on probability and statistics was ad- 
ministered to John Seymour, Robert Brill 
and James Dressel. Mr. Seymour and 
Mr. Brill have passed Part II. 

On May 18, Edward Mirmak, senior 
honors mathematics major and Dr. Bis- 
singer will take Part 4A, finite difference 
theory. The mathematics department ran 
a seminar in this field of study in the 
past semester. 

These examinations are of considerable 
importance to students who will work in 
insurance companies. The passing of each 
examination provides an automatic mini- 
mum 10-dollar-a-week salary increase. 






'Pole' Almost Misses 
May Day Ceremonies 

Piesident Miller's house was the scene 
ot unusual activity on tne morning of 
May Day this year. Maintenance men, 
caued by Dr. Miller who found the may 
pole on his front porch, removed it about 
10:00 a.m. 

Early that morning the doors to the 
locker room where the may pole hau 
oeen kept were found locked, as they had 
been the night before, but the may pole 
was not inside. 

It might be suggested that next time 
President Miller tell Miss Bowman when 
ne is planning to keep the may pole at 
his house for extra protection! 

Green Blotter Admits 
INew Club Member 

A new member was admitted into Green 
Blotter Club last Monday night. After a 
long debate on whether the anonymous 
manuscripts submitted showed potential 
talent or not, it was decided to take a poll 
of the members present, and the new bard 
was admitted. 

The vote? Three members wanted him 
taken in; two, unimpressed, voted no; and 
one abstained, suggesting that the poet 
submit more of his work at the first fall 
meeting for consideration at that time. 

Green Blotter votes on manuscripts 
wunout knowing the author in order to 
case membership in the club solely on 
merit., in this case, some of the criticisms 
given by the members were that the poems 
were too obscure, in need of better punc- 
tuation, and devoid of original ideas. Nan 
Napier, who abstained from voting, want- 
ed to hear more of the person's work be- 
tore making her decision. Thereupon, 
"Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Eve- 
ning " was recited to her; the secret was 
out, and the club broke into laughter, 
the poems in question were early Robert 
Frost poems found in an old anthology 
by Green Blotter member Ethel Nagle, 
who, along with Jean Kauffman, perpe- 
trated the hoax, or, as Dr. Struble would 
call it, la supercherie. 

Students Compete In 
Pension Trust Exam 

The third annual Pension Trust 
Mathematical Competition was conducted 
in the mathematics seminar room on May 
11. The examination is made up jointly 
by the college's department of mathe- 
matics and the Pension Trust Advisory 
Service of Harrisburg, which sponsors it 
with a fifty-dollar prize for the best 

A feature of this year's competition 
was unique questions on contract bridge. 
The competition was open to all students 
who had taken mathematical statistics or 
elementary statistics. 

Students participating in this years com- 
petition were James Davis, Gerald Brown- 
awell, Edward Mirmak, James Dressel, 
Allen Green, Robert Brill, James Boyle 
and John Seymour. 

LVC Band Presents 
President's Concert 

The Lebanon Valley College Sym- 
phonic Band presented the second an- 
nual President's Concert on Sunday after- 
noon, May 14. This concert is dedicated 
in appreciation to Dr. and Mrs. Miller. 

The concert was directed by Dr. James 
M. Thurmond and was in the form of an 
old-fashioned outdoor concert on the col- 
lege campus with a nostalgic yearning for 
the "good old days." The program began 
at 4:30 and featured many selections in- 
cluding Rossini's William Tell Overture, 
selections from Jerome Kern's Roberta, 
Sigmund Romberg's Will You Remember 
and many other favorites. 

Robert W. Smith, chairman of the 
music department of the college, described 
this concert as another effort to solidify 
relations between the college and the com- 
munity and said it was also an attempt to 
thank the community for its support of 
the college throughout the year. 

What's Goin 
At Other Schools 

Students sometimes get so wrapped up in their own little worlds 
that they are unaware of what is happening in other worlds. Therefore 
it is interesting to note the activities of other campuses during this pre- 
exam period. 

The freshmen class of Upsala held a 
Dink Day' on Wednesday, May 2. At 
7 a.m. about thirty of the more hearty 
members of the class attended the class 
flag raising. During the ceremonies the 
classmates joined in singing some of the 
familiar Upsala songs and then raised 
their own class flag under the American 
flag. A Kangaroo Court followed the 
class supper. Over one hundred were in 
attendance at the court. The judges tried 
cases involving frosh who had commit- 
ted offenses of one form or another 
against the school or classmates. The pur- 
pose of this day was to strengthen the ties 
of the class among themselves. 

During Easter vacation Temple Uni- 
versity won the Fort Lauderdale Volley 
Ball Championship. The team under the 
name of Temple University worked over 
all opposition on the sandy beaches of 
the Florida playland. 

MSC Starts Liberal Arts 

While at Millersville State College, a 
liberal arts program will be initiated be- 
ginning in September 1962. The inter- 
disciplinary program offers bachelor of 
arts degress in three curricula — human- 
ities, social sciences and natural sciences 
— with majors available in 13 different 
fields. Only course selection constitutes 
the difference between liberal arts and 
education students. Electives in the liberal 
arts program will be open to all students 
of the college. 

F & M Topics Series 

At our neighboring college, Franklin 
and Marshall, commentators on fields 
ranging from the Civil War to the popu- 
lation explosion are to be featured on the 
1962-63 Topics Series. Speakers include 
Dr. Henry Steele Commager, currently at 
Amherst College, Bruce Catton, author of 
a score of books on the Civil War, and 
Adolf A. Berle, Jr., recently chairman of 
President Kennedy's Task Force on Latin 

The following will also appear: H. F. D. 
Kitto, celebrated scholar of the Greek 
classics; Hodding Carter, Pulitzer prize 
winning journalist from Mississippi and 
one of the Southern voices in the inte- 
gration-segregation controversies of 1960; 
John Braine, author of the Room at the 
Top; William Vogt, one of the world's 
leading authorities on population pres- 
sures and a leading expert on ecology; 
W. H. Auden, the famed poet; Ambassa- 
dor Wadsworth, who served as leader of 
the American delegation at last year's 
Geneva disarmament talks; Barbara Ward, 
one of the most noted pundits in the area 
of economics and political science. 

From The Far West 

In the Spectator, Seattle University, Bob 
Jordan offers some drawings to be color- 
ed, with the following captions: 

I am a college student. Color me ivy 
league. Notice my pipe. It looks good. 
It tastes awful. Color it prominent. No- 
tice my sunglasses. They keep the rain 
out of my eyes. Color them useful. 

These are my parents. They pay for 
my education. Color them poor. They 
thought college would make me a better 
man. Color them disillusioned. 

This is my cigarette pack. Everybody 
borrows it. Color it empty. 

This is my adviser. He sees that I get 
the right classes. Color him blind. He 
is happy when I get good grades. Color 
him sad. He dresses intellectually. Color 
him sloppy. 

These are my tennis shoes. They are 
status symbols. I am a big wheel. Color 
the toes out. Color the laces broken. 
Color one lost under my bed. 

Club Plans Party 

Carnegie Lounge will be the site of

Math Club Members 
Tour Research Lab 

The Math Club of LVC journeyed to 
Bethlehem to visit the newly constructed 
Homer Research Laboratories of Bethle- 
hem Steel on May 3. Grant Heck, the 
head mathematician for Bethlehem Steel 
and also a graduate of Lebanon Valley, 
showed them the plant facilities. 

After a briefing on steel production, 
Mr. Heck showed them the IBM 1620 
computer which the company uses. As a 
demonstration the club played black jack 
with it and lost. Al Green, Bob Brill, 
Jim Snell, Lee Lapioli, Norm Butler, 
Harry Peachy, Carl Miller, John Seymour 
and Mr. Henning, advisor, made the trip. 

At the April meeting the officers were 
elected for the 1962-63 college year. They 
will be president, Al Green; vice presi- 
dent, Bob Brill; secretary-treasurer, Jim 

National APO Cities 
Outstanding Chapters 

The Nu Delta Chapter of Alpha Phi 
Omega has been selected as one of the 
fifty-two outstanding chapters in the na- 
tion. The Lebanon Valley College chap- 
ter was chosen in the category of colleges 
across the country whose enrollment is 
less than 2500 students. 

Alpha Phi Omega performs many use- 
ful services on our campus. They sponsor 
the LVC Blood Bank, Civil Defense pro- 
grams, and a few dances. The members 
of this organization also usher in chapel 
and care for the flag. 

Chem Students Visit 
DuPont Corporation 

The Student Affiliates, AGS, visited 
DuPont Inc., in Wilmington, Del., on 
May 8. In the morning they saw the 
textile manufacturing plant of the Chest- 
nut Run Laboratories and how synthetic 
fibers are produced and refined. This 
plant does not retail their products; they 
are for experimentation and testing pur- 
poses only. 

After eating at the plant cafeteria, the 
club visited the experimental station where 
basic and fundamenal research is done. 
They viewed the laboratory set-ups and 
the different shops (glass blowing, ma- 
chine, etc.) that aid the chemist. Twenty- 
one students and three faculty members — 
Dr. Lockwood, Dr. Haugh and Dr. Gris- 
wold — went on the trip. 

The annual Chem Club picnic will be 
held on May 19, at Hershey Park. Mem- 
bers and their guests are invited to attend.
